Curator: Catarina Rosendo
This is the first show to bring together the work of Carlos Nogueira, active since the beginning of the 1970s. The exhibition will offer a broad overview of his work, and will exhibit pieces that have rarely been displayed, or in some cases that have never been shown before.
Works from the period spanning the early 1970s to today will be presented, showing the proximity between the artist's different work methods and processes including performance, drawing, sculpture, the artist’s writings or books, and also the numerous means of questioning the onlooker.
The particular emphasis that Carlos Nogueira's work places on questions associated with the landscape, with constructions and with forms of inhabiting spaces will be approached based on conditions intrinsic to the actual creation of the work, more specifically on the care taken in the choice of materials (whether high-quality or industrially produced, new or found), on the constant balance between the ephemeral and the perennial, on the use of a limited chromatic palette, on the importance of planning, of the project and of the written work, of the meeting between the fluid gestures typical of assemblage processes and the constructive protocols valued by architecture.
