ÁLVARO SIZA - IN/DISCIPLINE
from 19 SEP 2019 to 02 FEB 2020
Name: Álvaro Siza
Discipline: as little as possible

This confessional note - once written by Álvaro Siza on the inner flap of one of his sketchbooks - was the point of departure for the exhibition commemorating the twentieth anniversary of the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art. 
Álvaro Siza: in/discipline reveals the salutary disquiet and insubordination that inform Siza’s creative method, construed over more than six decades in the cross-fertilization of knowledges, cultures, geographies, works and authors, and subsidiary to his questioning of architecture on the grounds of both what is inside and what is outside of this disciple. 
Featuring thirty of Siza’s projects dated from 1954 to 2019 (both built and unbuilt) the exhibition traces the professional trajectory of the architect, examining the early years of his education through the full consolidation of his voice as an architect; his readings, sketchbooks and travel records, and the ways his work has been portrayed, photographically in seminal publications and verbally in personal statements by many of those contemporaries who have crossed paths with it over time.

Exhibition curated by: Nuno Grande and Carlos Muro

The exhibition is organised by the Serralves Foundation - Museum of Contemporary Art, Porto, with contributions from the Serralves’ Álvaro Siza Archive, the Álvaro Siza fonds - Canadian Centre for Architecture, Montreal and the Álvaro Siza Archive - Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon.
