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.

Luisa Cunha was born in 1949 in Lisbon.

 At the basis of her work is a very clear and emotional notion of relativity of life itself, and consequently of conventions, of the meaningful difference between interior and exterior, of private and public, and of the fragmentary nature of the "non-place", of power, of time and place dimensions, and that of the discourse.

This conviction has had its origin in a practice that the artist has developed from an early age, being trained in observing without any aim in mind, just by letting things enter, in a state of complete receptiveness, by imposing no frontiers, and no judgements (as much as possible). First finding things and then seeking them.

Artist Bio

No, I don't even know what that ambition is, to be an artist. I was thrown into this. When my speech changed I realized there was one thing I needed to do: allow the present to flow.
