Contemporary Project is a new axis in the programming of the Museum combining a wide range of media and diversity of presentation forms, from exhibitions featuring a single work at the Museum to projects unfolding over several moments and across different periods of time. This will be a dynamic, reactive platform for the exhibiting of works by some of the most relevant contemporary artists active today in Portugal and around the world.

CONTEMPORARY PROJECTS - ANA MANSO: YO-YO
DE 2017-02-23 a 2017-05-07
"Yo-yo" is Ana Manso’s first solo exhibition in a museum. It features recent paintings by the young Portuguese painter and two murals produced directly on the walls of the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art’ Contemporary Gallery. The artist meticulously observed the space, using it as a temporary studio during a short period of time.
Manso's paintings are based on sophisticated games between figure and background, opacities and transparencies and explore tensions between abstraction and figuration through the use of concrete references that the artist retrieves from various sources - including architectural and decorative details in the urban landscape, images extracted from magazines and books, and details from other artist’s paintings and drawings.
The exhibition is organized by the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art and is curated by Ricardo Nicolau, curator and deputy to the museum’s director.
The exhibition is integrated in the Contemporary Projects programme - a dynamic platform for the presentation of works by emerging or established artists, who explore different disciplines in order to develop new art forms relevant to a younger generation.
