From 20 September 2014 to 25 January 2015 – La Mostra – Fondazione Palazzo Strozzi

The exhibition explores the major themes developed throughout the career of a painter who had the greatest impact on the history of the 20th century: art reflecting on art and on the relationship between the real and the super-real* and between nature and culture, the artist’s heartfelt involvement in the tragedy of unfolding history, the emergence of the monster with a human face, and the metaphor of erotic desire as a primary source of inspiration for the artist’s creativity and world vision.The exhibition also allows visitors to explore Picasso’s multi-faceted personality, the almost symbiotic bond that existed between his art and his life, between the work that he created and the time of his life in which he created it, while History with a capital “H” frequently made powerful inroads both into his pictures and into his life.

Panamericano Beatriz Milhazes. Paintings 1999 – 2012 – Buenos Aires – Argentina

Beatriz Milhazes

From September 14 to November 19, 2012 – Malba – Fundación Costantini – Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires

Beatriz Milhazes (Brazilian, b.1960) is a painter, printmaker, and collage artist associated with the Pattern and Decoration movement, and best known for her colorful, ornamental surfaces inspired by Brazilian cultural imagery. Born in Rio de Janeiro, she studied social communication at the Faculdades Integradas Hélio Alonso, and the Escola de Artes Visuais. Since 1987, she has worked in a studio in Rio de Janeiro near the city’s botanical gardens, which have inspired the leaf-like patterns in her work. Other influences include the work of landscape architect Roberto Burle, and Modernist painters Tarsila do Amaral (Brazilian, 1896–1973) and Piet Mondrian (Dutch, 1872–1944). Milhazes saturates the surfaces of her work with baroque patterns that incorporate everyday materials, such as Cacao (2004), which layers floral shapes with chocolate bar wrappers. In 2005, Milhazes completed a commission for the Gloucester Road Tube station, titled Peace and Love, which fills 19 vaulted arches with her signature colorful patterns. She has held solo exhibitions at museums, such as the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Fondation Cartier in Paris.

Ana Vidigal, Estilo Queen Anne – Lisbon – Portugal

Ana Vidigal, Penélope Installation 237 x 290 x 22 cm CAMJAP Collection , Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian

From Sept21 to November 5, 2011 – The Baginski, Galeria

Viewed as one of Portugal’s leading feminist artists, Vidigal is best known for her large-scale collage works that use layers of simple textures and materials to invoke new responses to experiences of the ‘everyday’.

The collages incorporate recycled materials, paint and the written word in what the artist calls a ‘game of hide and seek.
Vidigal has had numerous international solo exhibitions throughout her career including a major retrospective at Centro de Arte Moderna, Lisbon (2010), the Architecture Triennial, Lisbon (2007) and at Galeria Casa Triângulo, São Paulo, Brazil (2006).

Vidigal graduated from the Escola Superior de Belas-Artes de Lisboa in 1984. She received a Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian research grant (1985-87) and won the Maluda Painting Award in 1999 and the Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Prize in 2003. Vidigal was born in Lisbon, Portugal in 1960 where she continues to live and work.

Res Publica 1910 and 2010 A Face-Off – Lisboa – Portugal

Until January 16th 2011 – Centro de Arte Moderna – Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation

THE EXHIBITION offers the comparison between works from the beginning of the 20th and 21st centuries taking into account problems which debate the context and nature of the Res Publica and of the republic’s social heritage in the current globalized work.

With a national blueprint, the exhibition also includes works from foreign artists underlining or even enhancing aspects of the developed approach.
Public causes, their emergence and community strength are necessarily present in the artistic act, from the more private to the utterly political or simply collective one.
In the beginning of the 20th century in Portugal, the Res Publica is reviewed taking into account ideals and critical perspectives wishing for the renewal, but the facts portray an estranged reality of it.
In the beginning of the 21st century the Res Publica is the subject and the object of not only social but civilisation’s lack of guidance.
The exhibition aims to map out these realities, exhibiting works from those two moments, a century apart, and yet united by their theme.

Ana Vidigal Clean Girl, Dirty Girl – Lisbon – Portugal

Until the 26th of September – Centro de Arte Moderna
Clean Girl, Dirty Girl is the title of a series of works by Ana Vidigal dating from 2000, which has also naturally imposed itself as the title of this exhibition, since it represents a perfect synthesis of the thirty years of the artist’s work that this anthological exhibition seeks to rediscover.

The artistic production of Ana Vidigal (Lisbon, 1960) has always been connoted above all with painting, but this exhibition shows us that her work is by no means restricted to this one support; the artist herself used the expression “parallel work” to refer to that other more spatial dimension, which, at its most extreme, is also more experimental.

This anthology exhibition seeks to show the various dimensions of Vidigal’s work, because they are continuous and parallel and because, without the “parallel work”, her painting would certainly be completely different; between the “dirty” materials of painting and the “cleanliness” of the stationery and haberdashery equipment that she uses, there is a transit and a flow of someone who wants to upturn the pyramids of value and bring to the fore what is usually to be found in last place
