The Galeria Municipal do Porto hosts a regular programme of exhibitions and events dedicated to the contemporary visual arts, also developing specific projects in design and architecture. With the mission of presenting exhibitions that reflect on recent trends in contemporary artistic and discursive production, we promote research, exchange and dissemination of ideas stimulating debate surrounding the arts. Since relaunching its institutional mission in 2014, the Galeria Municipal do Porto has worked with a wide range of national and international partners in the programming and commissioning of exhibitions, performances and discussions. The Galeria Municipal do Porto also stimulates long-term engagement through its learning programmes and publications.
The Galeria Municipal do Porto is a project by the City Council of Porto with free admission for all visitors.
The exhibitions presented at the Galeria Municipal do Porto are commissioned by the Cultural Department of City Council of Porto

PRÉMIO PAULO CUNHA E SILVA

The Paulo Cunha e Silva Art Prize, created by the Municipality of Porto in 2015 as a tribute to the former Councillor for Culture, Paulo Cunha e Silva, is a project aimed at artists under 40 who have held no more than one solo exhibition in an internationally renowned institution or space. The jury – which in the first edition was comprised by João Laia, Vicente Todolí, Meg Stuart and Julião Sarmento – analysed the portfolios presented by 47 artists, selected by a group of 16 curators, nominated by the four jurors. This exhibition will present works by the Prize’s six finalists – Christine Sun Kim, Jonathas de Andrade, June Crespo, Mariana Caló and Francisco Queimadela, Naufus Ramírez Figueroa and Olga Balema. The first Paulo Cunha e Silva Art Prize was unanimously awarded to Mariana Caló and Francisco Queimadela.
The Paulo Cunha e Silva Art Prize is supported by the Fundação Millennium bcp.
