Serralves: The History of the Collection (from the Collection series)

In 2014, the Serralves Museum began a series of books dedicated to the research and presentation of its collection. These publications are intended as guides to both singular artworks works and representative conceptual and thematic tendencies not only of the institution's collection, but also of Portuguese contemporary art after the 1960s. The collection is defined by a pocket book format, in which the cover shows an image partially hidden by a white strip where the title is placed – only when you open the volume, or unfold the flaps, it becomes possible to read the entire image and text. 

The sixth volume of the series reconstructs the history of the Serralves Foundation Collection in a text and research project by Catarina Rosendo. It is generously illustrated with many of its emblematic works which in the book are accompanied by the list of exhibitions where they were shown.
