June 9–August 19, 2018

The Paulo Cunha e Silva Art Prize final exhibition at Galeria Municipal do Porto includes works by the six finalists Christine Sun Kim (USA), Jonathas de Andrade (Brazil), June Crespo (Spain), Mariana Caló and Francisco Queimadela (Portugal), Naufus Ramírez Figueroa (Guatemala) and Olga Balema (Ukraine).

The Paulo Cunha e Silva Art Prize, created by the City Council of Porto in 2015 as a tribute to the former Councillor for Culture, Paulo Cunha e Silva, is biennial and aimed at artists under 40 who have held no more than one solo exhibition in an “internationally renowned” institution or art space. Paulo Cunha e Silva was a doctor, art critic and curator, and his professional activity was always linked to theoretical reflection on contemporary art. His critical and broad vision of culture and his remarkable ability to create connections and to mobilize agents from all artistic domains have left a permanent mark on the city of Porto.

Curated by Guilherme Blanc and João Laia
