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.

His most recent one-man shows were: Bicos [Spikes], 2010, (Lisbon), Thumbnails and Models, 1, 2013 (Lisbon), and Thumbnails and Models, 2, 2013 (Porto), Misquoteros (Lisbon, MAAT Museum, 2016-17); his Image Descriptions (Porto, 2017), were shown together with a second presentation of the 30-piece Misquoteros.

There have been a few anthological and retrospective exhibitions of his work: in 1975, at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon (a large overview of his work at the RCA, as a scholar of the foundation); in 1998, at the Modern Art Centre, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon (Eduardo Batarda: Painting, 1965-1998); in 2009, at the Manuel de Brito Art Centre, Algés, Oeiras [Lisbon] (Eduardo Batarda in the CAMB Collection); in 2011, at the Serralves Museum, Porto (Eduardo Batarda: Outra Vez Não) [Not Again].

Patrícia Garrido graduated in painting at the Escola Superior de Belas-Artes in Lisbon (ESBAL). She has participated in numerous group exhibitions which include: Mais Tempo, Menos História, Serralves Foundation, Porto (1996); O Império Contra-Ataca, Galeria ZDB, Lisbon (1998); Squatters, Galeria do CRUARB, Porto (2001). Solo exhibitions include: T1, Serralves Foundation, Porto (1998); Móveis ao Cubo, Desenhos ao Acaso, TREM Galeria Municipal de Arte, Faro (2009); Peças Mais ou Menos Recentes, EDP Foundation, Museu Nacional Soares dos Reis and Galeria Fernando Santos, Porto (2013).

Eduardo Batarda was born in 1943 in Coimbra, Portugal, where he attended medical school at the local University from 1960 to 1963 – when he successfully applied to the Lisbon School of Fine Arts. He graduated from its two successive painting courses in 1967 and 1968. He served as a drafted officer in the Portuguese army (artillery) from 1968 to 1971 – when he started a three-year post-graduation at the Royal College of Art, London, attending the School of Painting of its Faculty of Fine Art (as it was at the time). He graduated in 1974 (MaRCA). At the RCA, he was awarded the Sir Alan Lane and John Minton prizes. From 1976 to 2008 he taught at the Porto School of Fine Arts. He wrote regularly about art and art exhibitions for a Portuguese weekly (during c. twelve months in 1974-75).

He first took part in a group show, the first of many, in 1966. His first one-man show took place in 1968, in Lisbon. He has had solo exhibitions on a regular basis, mainly in Lisbon and Porto.

Artist Bio

In Batarda's work, we are confronted with different tensions with respect to concepts of image, colour, reality, composition, structure, translation, intersexuality, superimposition, and so on.
