As the garden represents the rational ordering of nature, so an exhibition is a garden of images, ideas, and emotions. 'Can the Museum be a Garden?' presents work from the Serralves Collection that address landscape and nature – from natural materials to the movement of plants – and engage the garden as an expanded metaphor for seeing the world. Drawing the unique setting of the Serralves Park designed by Jacques Gréber, and the architecture of the Serralves Museum, conceived by Álvaro Siza, this publication also proposes the museum as a place for wandering and wondering.
