After 25 years of continuous activity, Galeria Mário Sequeira is now realizing new projects while approaching the exhibition programme in a more fluid manner. we will actively continue collaborating as consultants to international collections, promoting artistic work within public and private museums and institutions.
Meanwhile, it is with great pride to inform that our son, Duarte Sequeira, is currently developing his own, new, dynamic and innovative programme at the mário sequeira gallery premises since March, 2019.www.duartesequeira.com
Mário Sequeira Gallery was founded in 1994 in Braga, north of Portugal, and comprises three exhibiting areas: a historical building, a farmhouse from the late xix century, a 900 square-meter contemporary building, and a sculpture park within the bounds of an expansive green area.
The main exhibition building was designed by Carvalho Araújo. Throughout its history, the gallery held the first solo presentation of Andy Warhol in Portugal, solo shows of Richard Long, Franz West and Nan Goldin, besides some major group exhibitions including Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, Georg Baselitz, Noble and Webster, and Gilbert&George.
A close relationship with Richard Long also led to various interventions in the gallery with significant site-specific works still on display. The gallery has commissioned several large-scale projects for the sculpture park and presented works by Anselm Kiefer, Tony Cragg, Rachel Witheread, Anish Kapoor and Pedro Cabrita Reis alongside.
The exhibition program focused on highlighting and supporting the work of national and international artists, emphasizing curate practice, artist residency programs and educational projects. The gallery is open to the public with free admission 5 days a week throughout the year.
