The Casa de Mateus Foundation regularly organises art exhibitions.

In the visual arts, Mateus sought to showcase some of the most significant Portuguese artists in painting and sculpture, such as João Cutileiro, Nikias Skapinakis, Nuno Siqueira, Justino Alves, Margarida Lagarto, Graça Costa Cabral, Frederico George, Emília Nadal, Stuart Carvalhais, Vasco Futcher Pereira, Martha Teles, Manuel Costa Cabral, Jorge Martins, Júlio Resende, Luís Pinto Coelho, Júlio Pomar, Graça Morais, as well as a collective of serigraphs, a collective of sculptors, and exhibitions of engravings, drawings, photography and tapestries by the most diverse artists and nationalities.

Projects

1.1. Residencie The Present of the Future (Project)
The Present of the Future

Multidisciplinary artistic residencies

The development of the project The Present of the Future thus began with the start of the application process for this competition and will continue throughout 2002 according to an open system, shared with a group of particularly important curators. Each of these curators will be in charge of designing an original project that still has some concrete details. The residencies will bring together three artists from different languages and a non-artist who will act as mediator. Although the emphasis is on the process and the discovery that the confrontation of languages gives rise to, each residency should be shared with plural audiences, from people interested in getting to know the inside of artistic processes to the concert communities involved by the mediator. From this process, in addition to sharing, a videographic and editorial memory will be left that should constitute an artistic object in itself.

So far, for the 2023/24 biennium, we have invited curators Miguel Palma, Miguel Azguime and AnneMarie Maes. Miguel Palma is a visual artist who appropriates the narratives of a modernity in permanent questioning to better reflect on the present and unfolds his creativity in a constructive drive that summons and problematises concepts such as progress, degeneration, speed and failure. Miguel Azguime, Portuguese composer, poet and percussionist, founded the Miso Ensemble with Paula Azguime, a flute and percussion duo, one of the most important Portuguese contemporary music groups. He also created the Sond'Ar-te Academy, a training centre, and O'Culto da Ajuda, an experimental music room. Annemarie Maes studied at the Sint-Lucas Academy in Brussels and specialised in anthropological documentary film at the Institute for Sound Image Culture in Brussels. Her most important ongoing works focus on ecological themes, such as Bee Laboratory and Urban Corridors, which installs urban laboratories and creates artistic objects built from monitoring bee colonies.

Nadir Afonso Cycle
Nadir Afonso Cycle

After last July's opening of the exhibition 'Movimento Perpétuo | Tapeçarias e Serigrafias de Nadir Afonso' (Perpetual Movement | Tapestries and Serigraphs by Nadir Afonso), which has already seen a total of over 12,000 visitors, September will be the occasion for the Nadir Afonso Cycle, a series of three talks that bring together experts in painting, architecture, maths, aesthetics and other sciences to reveal the secrets of an immensely prolific and inspiring work.

On Saturday 3 September, at 6pm, the topic will be "Nadir Afonso, painter and architect". An opportunity to discover how these two languages converged in the genesis of the work of the painter from Flavi, the talk will be presented by Laura Afonso, president of the Nadir Afonso Foundation, and will be attended by António Quadros Ferreira, Professor Emeritus at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Porto, Adelaide Ginga, curator at the National Museum of Contemporary Art, and Celina Silva, researcher in Literature Theory, Art Theory, Aesthetics and Semiotics at the University of Porto. Teresa Albuquerque will be moderating.


The following Saturday, the 10th, also at 6pm, the talk will focus on "Maths in Nadir's work". With the presence of Elfrida Ralha, Professor at the University of Minho and a scholar of the work of José Anastácio da Cunha, Aníbal Ferreira, Professor at the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Porto, and João Cabeleira, Architect and Professor at the School of Architecture at the University of Minho, the confluences between Nature, Mathematics and Beauty will be discussed, highlighting Nadir's mastery and scientific sensitivity in the way he intuited and projected these notions in his unique Art.


Finally, on Saturday 17th, at 6pm, Carlos Fiolhais, a physicist with an extensive career in science communication, Fátima Lambert, Professor of Aesthetics and Education at the Porto School of Education, Laura Afonso, President of the Nadir Afonso Foundation, will talk about "Nadir Afonso's Aesthetic Theory", moderated by José Eduardo Reis, Professor at the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro.


The exhibition, which can still be seen until 30 September, as well as the Cycle, are organised by the Casa de Mateus Foundation, in partnership with the Nadir Afonso Foundation, in fulfilment of its territorial, heritage and contemporary art dissemination missions.
