João Vieira, Sem título ,1966. Fotografia: Angel Ordiales, © Fundação de Serralves, Porto.

This exhibition presents a selection of works belonging to the Secretary of State for Culture (SEC) that have been in deposit at the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art since the creation of the Serralves Foundation. The works chosen demonstrate the importance of painting and sculpture between the 1960s and 1980s in renewing artistic languages in Portugal and express the dialogues and formal confluences that Portuguese artists were able to establish both with each other and the international scene in the post-war period.
The SEC Collection was one of the first deposits to become part of the Serralves Collection highlighting a selection of Portuguese artists that served as a guideline for the inclusion of future acquisitions and creating foundations to consolidate the contemporary context chronologically, as well as its various themes.
‘Body, Abstraction and Language in Portuguese Art’ in Museu de Arte Contemporânea Nadir Afonso is part of a programme of exhibitions and sited presentations of works from the Serralves Collection that furthers the Museum’s aim of making the Collection visible and accessible to a broader public around the country.
