Arquipélago Collection - A trilogy of exhibitions

Jun- Sept 2023

Curated by João Mourão

Concrete drawings for uncertain futures is the first of a trilogy of exhibitions that Arquipélago - Contemporary Arts Center will inaugurate over the next three months, with works from its collection.

This exhibition raises questions to reflect on the role of a discipline such as drawing in the globalized discourses of contemporary art of our times.

The exponential growth of technological mediation means that the vast majority of our interactions with the outside world, and even with our personal and subjective worlds, are almost exclusively perceived through a screen. Reality has become what is visible and shared in the small black glass rectangles we hold in our hands and keep in our pockets. Contemporary art has incorporated this change in the way we understand-the world today: sophisticatedly technological artworks are now the norm in museums, galleries, biennials, and art fairs around the world.

Does this mean that artworks unmediated by technology have lost their place in contemporary societies? Are they just testimonies of an analog past voted to abandonment and oblivion?

Wireless Exhibition at Córtex Frontal


Collective exhibition at Córtex Frontal, Arraiolos, Portugal

Opening on April 28, 2023

Echo, 2023, acrylic, oil, oil pastel and thread on cotton, 180 × 130 cm

WIRELESS is a cycle of thematic artist residencies, designed by Córtex Frontal - Residências e Oficinas, aimed to visual artists interested in learning or deepening knowledge in textile techniques such as: Embroidery, Weaving, Stamping and Dyeing. WIRELESS wants to encourage visual artists to learn and to incorporate the “textile language” in their artistic practice, understanding it in an expanded way without necessarily contemplating the use of wires, hence the name wireless. WIRELESS have place in Arraiolos, a town where rugs are hand embroidered since the middle age, located in Alentejo, one of the least-populated regions in western Europe. WIRELESS wants to create an artists web without wires, borders and cultural barriers. In this first edition WIRELESS invited 21 artists to participate in the residencies in 2022 and to join an itinerary group exhibition in 2023.

Painting without end / Pintura sem fim

Driving, 2014

oil on canvas, 80 × 100 cm

Collective exhibition at Brotéria, Lisbon

Painting without end wants to celebrate an encounter of different practices of this artistic discipline. It brings together works of painting executed on canvas, its traditional pictorial support. Since the 15th century, with the development of portable painting, the canvas translates a unique materiality as an element of great condensation and culture dissemination.

Revisiting, ironically, the typical exhibition modes of the Salon de peinture et de sculpture in late 17th century Paris, painting, as an irrevocable and infinite element, is brought together in the times and geographies of the visual arts. Pintura sem fim brings to the surface, in Jackson Pollock's formulation, the "energies, movements and other inner forms" of painting today, among a selection of exemplary elements of the most diverse varieties and provenances.

No One Knows – Book launch

This is the first book edited by AiR 351, devoted to our first local artist in residence, Luísa Jacinto.

This publication was made possible due to an intense exchange experience with the artist along the residency and beyond, to the vision ofAna Luísa Bouza, the collaboration with stolen books, the partnership with Artworks, the support from Direcção Geral das Artes and the involvement of Galeria Quadrado Azul. Last but not the least, we express our gratitude to the authors of the texts and essays: João Pinharanda, Miguel Mesquita, Marta Mestre and Lauren Moya Ford.

Join us on May 13. Brotéria kindly welcomes this event. Luiza Teixeira de Freitas will lead the conversation with the artist.
