Following the presentation of The Sonnabend Collection. Half a Century of American and European Art. Part I in 2016, the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art presents a major exhibition devoted to the Sonnabend Collection, The Sonnabend Collection. Part II.

Created by the influential art dealer Ileana Sonnabend, the Sonnabend Collection is considered one of the most important collections of American and European art of the second half of the twentieth century, representing some of the most influential western art movements of our time. While known for her support of the prime artistic protagonists of pop art, minimalism, arte povera, post-minimalism and conceptual art, Sonnabend’s engagement continued up to her death in 2007.

Part II will not be a chronological continuation of Part I, in 2016, but an exploration of two other themes present in the Sonnabend Collection:  the use of photography starting with conceptual art in the 1960s and coming up to the present; and the work of artists from the 1980s which relate to pop art, minimalism, and conceptual art. The exhibition will include works by Gilbert & George, Bernd and Hilla Becher, John Baldessari, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Candida Hofer, Haim Steinbach and Ashley Bickerton, among others. A presentation of sculptures by Jeff Koons, produced between 1985 and 2012, will constitute a small retrospective exhibition of works by this iconic American artist.

Plato is one of the founding figures of Western civilization. His legacy encompasses ethics, politics, theology, and poetics. In this exhibition at the Getty Villa, a museum exploring classical art and culture, some of today's most celebrated artists consider Plato's impact on the contemporary world. In the form of sculptures, paintings, drawings, and large-scale installations, they respond to his contribution to philosophy—from defining the ideal to understanding the human condition—while fostering the ultimate Platonic experience: contemplation.
