During the year 2010, the Serralves Museum will open a branch in Lisbon. This announcement was made by Artur Santos Silva, chairman of the board of the BPI bank, during a celebration at Serralves, that included the presentation of the book "Artistas Portugueses na Colecção da Fundação de Serralves" (Portuguese Artists in the Collection of the Serralves Foundation). This new space is not intended for exhibitions.
Located in the 15B of the Augusto Gil street, in Lisbon, the bookstore Círculo das Letras will present the second edition of "O Nosso Bairro". This colective exhibition, taking place from December 16, 2009 through January 6, 2010, gathers the works of the people who live or work in the neighbourhood and have art as a hobby or their main activity.
With the sponsorship of Blick Art Materials, a gift certificate in the value of $25 will be send, together with a catalogue, to one of the readers of The Art Inquirer. The winner will be announced on December 20th, 2009.
