19, May, 2017 20:00 >> 3, Sep, 2017
Fundação Serralves
Occupying the central gallery and rooms of the left wing of the Museum, this important exhibition presents 20 years of paintings and drawings by Julie Mehretu (Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 1970) - from 1996 to the present day. Mehretu is one of the most important artists working today. This will be her first exhibition in Portugal. Her paintings have redefined the way we think of painting as an instrument for mapping the world in time and space. Although Mehretu is known primarily for her monumental paintings that combine architectural plans and city maps - as part of research into the themes of globalization and identity - her work is based on a simultaneously rigorous and explosive exploration of drawing. Mehretu evokes several references, ranging from surrealistic drawings to Chinese calligraphy, also including the pictorial experiences of Henri Michaux produced under the influence of mescaline. Eliminations and deletions are as important as the marks produced by the artist, thus giving rise to a palimpsest of spaces built on the basis of visual and cultural memories.
Mehretu has participated in countless international and biennial exhibitions that have won her international recognition, including, the American Art Award from the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York in 2005, and the prestigious MacArthur Fellows Award. In 2009 and 2010, Mehretu exhibited a series of large-scale paintings in the Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin, which then travelled to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. Her monumental panel of paintings, Mogamma, which is part of an ongoing meditation on sites of revolution and social change, was commissioned for Documenta 13 in 2013.
The exhibition is organized by Fundação de Serralves - Museu de Arte Contemporânea, and Fundación Botín. The exhibition at Serralves Museu de Arte Contemporânea is curated by Suzanne Cotter and the exhibition at Fundación Botín is curated by Vicente Todoli.

Photostructuralism
15, Jun, 2017 20:00 >> 10, Sep, 2017
Fundação Serralves
The exhibition "PHOTOstructuralism" will introduce visitors to a wide range of conceptual approaches associated to the use of photographs as formal elements in artists’ publications and books. The exhibition will be grouped around Georg Herold’s work, "Das Tafelwerk" (1992) - an important and impressive edition that is an integral part of Serralves Library’s collection of artists’ publications and books. This key work consists of 597 polaroids, distributed across 28 panels that refer to the banality of day-to-day life and the immaterial meaning of works of art.
The exhibition, organized by the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art, is curated by Guy Schraenen, consultant to Serralves Library.

Gregory Porter & Orquestra Sinfónica
29, Jul, 2017 22:00 (Saturday)
Casa da Música
Orquestra Sinfónica do Porto Casa da Música gathers once again with one of the most impressive jazz names in the world, the unique Gregory Porter. The American singer, who combines elements of jazz, blues, gospel and soul in his music, won two Grammy Awards in the category of Best Vocal Jazz Album, first with Liquid Spirit, in 2014, and most recently with Take Me to the Alley (2017). Considered by DownBeat as the likely jazz standards of the century, Gregory Porter’s songs gain symphonic outlines in this collaboration with Orquestra Sinfónica, with arrangements by W. Friede, M. Fondse and T. Trapp, exploring the countless expressive possibilities of strongly emotional music.

Concertos na Avenida
Mão Morta & Remix Ensemble

8, Sep, 2017 22:00 (Friday)
Avenida dos Aliados
After the resounding success of this project’s national tour, Remix Ensemble reunites with Mão Morta, sharing the stage of Aliados Avenue in a free concert for the whole city. The original arrangements by Telmo Marques go over the entire discography of the most iconic Portuguese alternative rock band, in a perfect combination of languages that are apparently very diverse. From the classics “Facas em Sangue”, “Berlim” and “Destilo ódio” to the most recent “Pássaros a esvoaçar”, “Tiago Capitão” and “Hipnose de Suicídio”, the musical set is a journey through the imaginative universes of Adolfo Luxúria Canibal.
