PLMJ and the PLMJ Foundation support the reopening of the Gulbenkian Modern Art Centre


The renovated CAM - Gulbenkian Modern Art Centre - a project by architect Kengo Kuma, framed by a new garden designed by landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic, will open its doors in September with several exhibitions and a performing arts programme.

PLMJ and the PLMJ Foundation are very proud to be part of this great project, supporting Gulbenkian in the reopening of an essential and fundamental space for art in Portugal. The protocol formalising this partnership was signed in October 2023 in the presence of Bruno Ferreira, managing partner of PLMJ, Eduardo Nogueira Pinto, chairman of the board of the PLMJ Foundation, Nuno Ferreira Morgado, chairman of the board of the PLMJ Foundation, António Feijó, chairman of the board of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, and Guilherme d'Oliveira Martins, administrator of the Gulbenkian Foundation.

Bruno Ferreira: "We were honoured and proud to be invited by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation to be one of the founding patrons of the new CAM. This is the biggest cultural project in the country for several decades, and it takes the city and Portugal to a new level in terms of cultural programming, in addition to being an absolutely extraordinary architectural project".

Eduardo Nogueira Pinto: "The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation plays a vital role in the fields of art, knowledge and science, and this protocol is also inextricably linked to the history of PLMJ, which created the PLMJ Foundation more than 20 years ago, choosing culture as the focus of its patronage. Today, the Foundation's active role in promoting emerging culture in Portugal and Portuguese-speaking countries is clearly visible, with a collection of more than 1,400 works by more than 500 artists and ongoing support for various cultural organisations and initiatives. This support for Gulbenkian is also a reflection and reaffirmation of the PLMJ Foundation's commitment to culture and the community".

As Gulbenkian has now announced, CAM will reopen to the public on 20 September 2024, following a major renovation by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. Surrounded by a magnificent garden open to the city, designed by landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic, the centre will house an important collection of modern and contemporary Portuguese art, as well as works by international artists.
