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, also stimulating long-term engagement through its learning programmes and publications.

The Galeria Municipal do Porto has free admission and the support of EDP Foundation as the main patron.

Expo’98 no Porto is a competition which attributes two grants for the development and production of two exhibitions in the Galeria Municipal do Porto in 2019 and 2020.

As a municipal institution, the Galeria Municipal's mission is to present exhibitions that promote a reflection about contemporary artistic and discursive trends. Expo’98 no Porto aims to include within this overall reflection on the role of the Galeria Municipal a project which will strengthen the relationship between the singularity of its programming identity and the city’s artistic and curatorial practices.

Directed at curators and artists residing in Porto during the entire period of concession and implementation of the exhibitions, Expo’98 no Porto has a total budget of 98.000 euros. The two exhibitions chosen within the competition will be presented at the Galeria Municipal: the first exhibition, with a 34,000 euros budget , will open in December 2019, and the second exhibition, with a 64.000 euros budget , will open in 2020.

Applications must be sent to galeriamunicipal@cm-porto.pt from March 1, 2019.

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.
