Galeria Miguel Nabinho – Lisboa 20 began in 2000 as a pioneering project in Portugal.

 

Its exhibitions took place in spaces chosen by the artists themselves, and thus meant the gallery space (which was not fixed) would be the most appropriate location for the works on show.

In February 2003, we opened a space in Campo de Ourique where we have held exhibitions and keep our depository of works for sale by all the artists we represent.

By now Galeria Miguel Nabinho works with some of the most important Portuguese artists, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Ana Jotta, Luísa Cunha, Salomé Lamas,... Internationally, Galeria Miguel Nabinho – Lisboa 20 has grown, and since 2009 has been participating in International Art Fairs.

Exhibition Opening

Her work is featured in the following collections: Museu do Chiado, Serralves Foundation, Museu de Arte Contemporânea do Funchal, EDP Foundation, Coleção António Cachola and also the Coleção Banco Privado. She received the Prémio União Latina prize in 2001.From the principles of assemblage, intervened appropriation and abstract construction, the artist creates objects that appeal to the careful reading of their own processes, surprise and intrinsic nature. Isolated or conceived for dialogues in the space, they have the presence and the tactile appeal of sculpture, but also the resourcefulness of drawing and the intriguing challenge of their latent symbolic reference.

Ana Jotta has build her work in a sequence of breakthroughs that embody some sort of erasement: of her own previous footsteps; of modernist ideology and post-modern mythologies; and of the notion of authorship - either by deconstructing it or rebuilding it, she has attempted to dismantle the idea of a coherent or univocal style. Through a bare economy of means, her work shows a great sense of intelligence and wit. With Ana Jotta, you can always expect the unexpected.
