‘Table of Dreams: Two Contemporary Art Collections’ features approximately 30 works from the Serralves Collection and from the Collection of the Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD),long-term loan to Fundação de Serralves - Museu de Arte Contemporânea. The title of the exhibition is taken from a poem by Alexandre O’Neill, an acclaimed poet and visual artist. ‘Table of Dreams’ is based on the table as both a metaphor and a source of living experience — a place of encounters, confrontations, communion, relaxation, and a social space, whether in the intimacy of the home or in an open and shared public space. 
The exhibition does not focus on a single form of artistic expression, but instead attempts to establish a confrontation between different modes of production and thinking. Through a dialogue between the two collections, the viewer is invited to engage in a plurality of universes and aesthetic, political and poetic questions.
Although the two collections have very different profiles and dimensions, they also have common elements and complement each other. The FLAD’s Collection includes a considerable number of drawings by Portuguese artists, while the Serralves Collection — particularly rich in the period from the 1960 until 2000s — provides an international context for these works.
‘Table of Dreams: Two Contemporary Art Collections’ is part of a programme of exhibitions and sited presentations of works from the Serralves Collection that furthers the museum’s aim of making the collection visible and accessible to a broader public around the country.
