 The Serralves Shop, in collaboration with "Sementes de Portugal", developed a special edition of Red Carnation Seeds to plant in your home.

The red carnations, which are forever linked to the Carnation Revolution of 1974, represent a symbol of a revolution that led Portugal to democracy, ending 48 years of dictatorship.  Moreover, the seeds themselves have additional symbolism, depicting the birth, growth and blossoming of freedom at the hands of those who receive them.

Plant and grow your own red carnations or give them to someone as a symbol of hope and freedom!

Each packet contains around 60 seeds.

Germination time: 3 weeks

Pre/Post ― Visual Variations of 25 April commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Carnation Revolution. More than just a celebration, the exhibition aims to investigate tensions, contradictions, and paradoxical movements that marked the periods immediately prior to and after the Revolution. The exhibition, which spans the period from 1970 to 1977, records how the art world reflected the experiences and feelings that accompanied the revolutionary process, mixed between utopian enthusiasm and muted apprehension. 

Giving visibility to artists and works that are relatively unknown in Portugal, the exhibition offers a unique opportunity to think about this rich but troubled period of Portuguese art history, where the political manifesto could either take on a more pamphleteering dimension or assert itself through works of a more conceptual nature, as a discursive and formal support for the freedoms that were sought for and attained. The exhibition includes over 300 works, spanning media as varied as painting, sculpture, photography, film, engraving, installation, posters and the publishing of books and magazines. We sense therein the seismic presence of multiple representations of the body, often penetrated by challenging political references.

Sementes de Portugal is a brand known for its traditional Portuguese seeds, promoting the preservation of the country's agricultural biodiversity. They offer a carefully selected range of high-quality seeds, encouraging the cultivation of plants.
