‘Live Uncertainty: An Exhibition after the 32nd Bienal de São Paulo is the second time the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art in Porto receives the Bienal de São Paulo in Europe. This collaboration between the Serralves Foundation and the Fundação Bienal de São Paulo reflects the commitment of both institutions to contemporary art and its production as part of a culturally engaged and global network of relations of which the Bienal has become one of its principle platforms. 

Titled Incerteza viva [Live Uncertainty], the 32nd Bienal de São Paulo reflects on the current conditions of life and the strategies offered by contemporary art to harbor or inhabit uncertainty. The presentation at Serralves extends the engagement with forms of ambient and collective intelligence, as well as systemic and natural ecologies. Resulting from a dialogue between the curator of the 32nd edition of the Bienal de São Paulo, Jochen Volz, and the Deputy Director and Senior Curator of the Museum, João Ribas, the presentation is conceived in relation to the unique architecture and landscape of Serralves.

For the presentation in the park, the Serralves Museum has commissioned five architecture studios from Porto - depA, Diogo Aguiar Studio, Fahr, fala atelier and Ottotto - to design and build temporary structures to host works by Gabriel Abrantes, Jonathas de Andrade, Cecilia Bengolea & Jeremy Deller, Priscila Fernandes and Bárbara Wagner & Benjamin de Burca. 

Installations, drawings, video and performance-based work by Sonia Andrade, Alicia Barney, Lourdes Castro, Öyvind Fahlström, Carla Filipe, Leon Hirszman, Lais Myrrha, Vídeo nas Aldeias, and Grada Kilomba will be on view throughout the Serralves park and Serralves Museum.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with essays by Jochen Volz, Julia Rebouças, and João Ribas.

‘Live Uncertainty: An Exhibition After the 32nd Bienal de São Paulo’ is organized by the Fundação Bienal de São Paulo in collaboration with the Fundação de Serralves, Museu de Arte Contemporânea, Porto, Portugal.
