Located in the peripheries of the city of Braga, Galeria Duarte Sequeira includes a 900 square-meter contemporary building and a warehouse designed by Carvalho Araújo and surrounded by a Sculpture Park.


Galeria Duarte Sequeira is conceived as a space dedicated to working closely with, supporting and promoting national and international contemporary artists. Established in 2019, GDS has worked with both emerging and established artists; supporting their practice, encouraging their work to grow and developing new ways of experiencing and understanding contemporary art. With a wide range programme of exhibitions, the gallery aims to produce and present challenging, thoughtful and exciting exhibitions with a strong focus on research and with awareness of the current global artistic scene.


Within its first year, the gallery initiated an Artist Residency Programme as a means to actively support artistic projects and to provide the residents with the opportunity to live in Braga, while developing their research and contributing to the gallery programme. Alongside the Exhibition and Residency programme, Galeria Duarte Sequeira presents a curated Public Programme focused on creating local events, stimulating a critical exchange of ideas on contemporary art and encouraging participation.
