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.

In 2016, a group of ten works created between 2007 and 2015 by the Portuguese artist, who has received a great deal of international attention, is presented at the Pavilhião Branco in Lisbon. Entitled Os Pirómanos, the exhibition continued to the Centro Internacional das Artes José de Guimarães.

In 2018, the curator Yuko Hasegawa presented Rui Moreira’s works in the exhibition Saudade Unmemorable Place in Time — China-Portugal Contemporary Art at the Fosun Foundation in Shanghai. This exhibition is also presented at the Museu Coléção Berardo — The Cultural Center of Belém in Lisbon that same year.

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).

Rui Moreira, studied in Ar.Co and in the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and, presently, teaches Drawing at Ar.Co. "My basis is always drawing, drawing as a field of risk and nervous relationship with the world. My most recent drawings, are drawings of physical experience of the relation of my body with the Sahara desert and with the chaos of the Arab architecture. My sculpture is abstract and exists in non-places that are physically interior, psychological landscapes. The dominant feeling that connects the sculptures to the landscapes is desire. I am interested in everything that cannot be put into words, is not spoken or is spoken very quietly. It is not just about creating new forms and new techniques, but also about creating/opening new territories for art."

Artist Bio

His metodology resorts to a construction that evokes the psychedelic universe, in a formula that combines such influences as Katsushnika Hokusai's prints, Anime illustrations, and Sol Lewitt's drawings. His mythically-flavoured figures mix the Marafonas (masked players) of the Caretos Festival with Manga characters and allusions to film characters or depictions from the history of painting.
