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.

Curriculum vitae

Ana Jotta was born in Lisbon in 1946, where she works and lives. After studying at Lisbon´s Fine Arts School and Brussels' École d'Arts Visuels de l'Abbeye de la Cambre, Worked as an actress and stage designer (1976-79) with "Produções Teatrais" (University Theatre, Lisbon). From the 1980's onwards, she focused her activity on the visual arts and since the early nineties has been a regular presence at major art fairs and biennales (ARCO, Brussels, Johannesburg, Barcelona, etc.). In 2005, she had the retrospective exhibition Rua Ana Jotta at the Museu de Serralves.. In 2014, Ana presented an anthological A Conclusão da Precedente at Culturgest, Lisbon.

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.

2013 - Grande Prémio Fundação EDP;

2014 - Prémio AICA;

2017 - Rosa Shapire Award, Kunsthalle, Hamburg. 

Artist Bio

When I'm working, I'm not trying to answer anything in particular. I'm doing a series of actions that I have to do, something very pragmatic, very prosaic, cutting wood, put it in, take it out ... and it works almost like a statement.
