Curators’ Choices

Over the next months, the curators of the Modern Collection will explore on a selection of works of art, which include creations by national and international artists.

Brought together by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in 1983 , the Modern Collection includes more than 11,500 works of art, from the 20th Century to the present, with great emphasis on Portuguese art. 

 The Modern Collection building will remain closed untill 2022, due to planned remodelling works for the building and the south side of the Gulbenkian Garden.

During the next months, we will keep the Collection alive through testimonies written by the curators who work closely with the works. The diverse selection includes Portuguese and international artists, who create their art on various media.
