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.

Selected Artworks

Exhibitions

Sculptures become images; when attached to windows, monochromatic articulated paintings lead to arquitectural elements or develop sculptural qualities. Photographs which appear in the instalations open never-ending spaces for memory and reflection. Nature appears in his work in an extremely filtred way, as a road to consciousness. The loss of nature as a reference idea is the engine of Cabrita Reis' work. The artist sees architecture as replacing it and understands it as a mental discipline or a “reality exercise”through which we measure ourselves and the world. This requires a very high precision.

Pedro Cabrita Reis was born in 1956 in Lisbon (where he lives and works) and is one of today's most famous portuguese artists. His work has been shown in well established international shows, such as the 9th Kassel Documenta and the 24th São Paulo Bienale. In 2003, he represented Portugal at the Venice Bienale. The complex work of Cabrita includes a multiplicity of means, from drawings using graffiti and pastel, to large scale painting and arquitectural dimensioned installations. The flux between the used materials nevertheless maintains each's own character.

Curriculum vitae

The perfect moment is the moment of a successful balance between form and content, past and present, self and the world, which art, as I believe, continually envisages.
