The 2017 programme of the "New Perspectives" cycle focuses on the relationships between art and architecture including discussions with architects, curators, philosophers and researchers from different fields of knowledge. Under the topic, "Conversations between art and architecture", the conferences are curated and moderated by Anabela Mota Ribeiro in collaboration with Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art. 

With Manuel Aires Mateus, architect, José Maria Vieira Mendes, playwright, and Ângela Ferreira, artist. 
Moderated by Anabela Mota Ribeiro, journalist. 
Born in 1958 in Maputo, Mozambique, Ângela Ferreira grew up in South Africa and obtained her MFA from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, University of Cape Town.
She lives and works in Lisbon, teaching Fine Art at Lisbon University, where she obtained her doctorate in 2016

Ferreira's work is concerned with the ongoing impact of colonialism and post-colonialism on contemporary society, an investigation that is conducted through in-depth research and the distillation of ideas into concise and resonant forms.
She represented Portugal at the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007, continuing her investigations into the ways in which European modernism adapted or failed to adapt to the realities of the African continent by tracing the history of Jean Prouvé's "Maison Tropicale".

Manuel Aires Mateus was born in Lisbon in 1963 and graduated from "Faculdade de Arquitectura / U.T.L” in 1986. He started collaborating with the Arch. Gonçalo Byrne in 1983 and started developing projects with his brother Francisco in 1988. The office Aires Mateus was then established independently by the two brothers although it was housed in Gonçalo Byrne’s studio in the first years. The increasing scale of work made them establish a larger and autonomous space to fulfil the demands. Since then the scale and the number of projects has been prolific, resulting in several national and international awards. The visibility of their work has made them being invited and accepting lecturing and teaching at several institutions. Among these are the Graduate School of Design in Harvard, The Accademia di Architetura in Mendrízio as well as several others in Portugal. The structure right now spans through two studios both based in Lisbon, having several partnerships with local studios for international works.
