While the team is busy installing the Quick Quick Slow exhibition - we thought an introduction to the exhibition venue may be of interest to EXD’09 visitors - especially those from out of town.

One of the most highly regarded private contemporary art collections in Europe today, the Berardo Collection Museum is named after its founder, Portuguese businessman Joe Berardo. The Museum opened in 2006 and displays selections of its 862 works of art, in a rotation between the several themes that compose the collection. It occupies the exhibition centre of Centro Cultural de Belém.

Located in a symbolic area of the city, Centro Cultural de Belém was designed by the Italian architect Vittorio Gregotti in collaboration with the Portuguese architect Manuel Salgado and was built to house the Portuguese presidency of the European Union in 1992. Open to the public since 1993, the CCB is now a vast cultural centre with a seasonal programme of performing arts’ shows, lectures and educational activities. It features several facilities and is located in an architecture compound doted with gardens, lakes and immense public areas.
