  • 2018 – Bráulio Amado

    45.00

    “There is a style that can be considered ‘no-style’. It’s something that can be eventually mastered, although naturally, it’s a bumpier road than sticking to one thing. The plus side though is that nothing is out of reach – you can always experiment, change and adapt.” Edd Norval (Compulsive Contents)

  • Auto Erotica Penelope sticker – TIAGO EVANGELISTA

    10.00

    Tiago Evangelista was born in Viseu in 1987. He moved to Lisbon, where he lives and works, after finishing the arts course at ESAD Caldas da Rainha in 2011. Painting has always been the main focus of his work. Suburban space, abandoned buildings, and industrial objects are constant, both in abstract and figurative paintings that usually conjure up contemporary objects and trademarks (logos). He is one of the founders of the Germes Gang collective but before all, the son of a mechanic.

  • Why I’m Still A Communist – Pedro Pousada

    39.00

    Anger, ruin, and disharmony can also become gritty combustion. These drawings discuss the human subject, not its abstraction, not its statistical profile, not its standardization, but the dirty and stubborn creature made of biology and culture, the Adamic creature lost in his pioneering disillusion that the wild or the technological world will save it from redundancy and finitude.

  • Don’t Make Me Spell It Out – Cecília Corujo

    36.00

    “Don’t Make Me Spell it Out” by Cecília Corujo presents itself as a logbook, a record of a journey through the process of growing a character. Throughout a set of drawings, collages, questions, or lyrics, all done during a 1 year period, the book explores the blurring of a position, the emotional ambivalence that characterizes the end of youth and entering adulthood - a discussion between expectations and disappointments.

  • The Life Of Ruben – Bernardo Sousa Santos

    33.00

    “The life of Ruben” is the result of chance. An album of childhood photographs found on the street among other remains is now censored with gouache and finally rearranged. It had already ceased to be life, it became an object. From a set of just over a hundred images, twenty-five are presented to give shape to a reinvented memory.

  • DESDICIONÁRIO DA LÍNGUA PORTUGUESA – LUÍS LEAL MIRANDA

    27.00

    franfolho s. m. | Uma coisa sem nome, de forma indistinta, que só conseguimos identificar ao apontar e dizer: «É aquilo ali». A palavra «franfolho» surgiu pela primeira vez num dicionário em 1977. Não consta nas edições de anos anteriores nem no léxico de nenhum país de expressão portuguesa. Vários estudiosos acreditam que «franfolho» surgiu de uma aposta entre lexicógrafos e há quem defenda a existência de um prémio para a primeira pessoa a detetar o intruso. Existe ainda a teoria de que o termo tenha sido incluído no dicionário depois de uma amarga derrota no Scrabble («franfolho» vale 21 pontos). A tese mais comum, no entanto, é a de que o novo vocábulo entrou no dicionário para apanhar as editoras que o andavam a copiar. «Franfolho» não é a primeira palavra inventada na língua portuguesa porque todas as palavras antes dela também foram inventadas. E não é o primeiro erro do dicionário porque já lá estava a palavra "erro". O Desdicionário da Língua Portuguesa pretende servir de estufa para palavras sem raiz etimológica, orfanato para nomes de ascendência desconhecida ou mapa para a Atlântida dos significados. Inclui «franfolho» e outras 218 novas palavras novas que se não fossem inventadas tinham de existir.

  • THE SWIMMER – KLAUS KREMMERZ

    23.00

    A “masterpiece” Klaus has always been in love with, the narrative of The Swimmer was Klaus’ first thought when Portuguese publishers Stolen Books asked him to make his own book. “It’s an intense story,” the illustrator tells It’s Nice That of the short, originally published in The New Yorker before being adapted into a film in 1968. In discussing an individual’s dependence on alcoholism, “of which the protagonist is a victim,” The Swimmer’s storyline gradually takes a darker and darker turn which in Klaus’ words is “poignant and dramatic, but at the same time fresh and full of vitality.” — It’s Nice That

  • CONTEMPORARY LANDSCAPES – GERMES GANG

    18.00

    Lisbon-based illustration quartet Germes Gang, who work with both traditional forms of illustration and street art, have released a new book visualising their very favourite things. Contemporary Landscapes brings points of obsession for the gang — including “iconic cartoons. TV shows, brands, sports, and the low life” – into being. For the illustration gang’s four members, collaboration is thought of as “graffiti and art interventions which are politically and socially charged,” they tell It’s Nice That. Consequently, they see their practice as one “embedded in sarcasm,” and “perceive everything related to contemporary life traumatic.” — It's Nice That

  • AS AVENTURAS DE QUALQUER COISA – ANDRÉ RUIVO

    15.00

    I would prefer not to And so, suddenly, there are three ways to look at these drawings and all things reveal its incompleteness. Initially, each seems to develop new episodes of the life philosophy of Herman Melville’s Bartelby, the scrivener. Bartelby was a hero by absence, refusing the do all the requested talks, repeating, like a magic formula: “I would prefer not to”. Bernardo Soares is not far from it. Nevertheless, André Ruivo’s characters, with a self-destructive and deceptive sense of humour, are moving characters. So being, they are closer to the logic of urban dromology of Baudelaire’s flâneur. But they wander in an empty city, and not one full of people, a Sunday city and not an anonymous Boulevard or a Nevsky crowded street. In these drawings there is also a Pop drift: in the colours, the human bodies, the gesture’s theatricality, its props, the city’s buildings… everything indifferently perspectived, geometrized or planned, everything exclusively garish and musically rhythmic– memories of a certain and psychedelic submarine. Finally, in these drawings, it seems as if nothing is going on. Or almost nothing. Or nothing important. There is, after all, something. We can even tell very important things are going on. — João Pinharanda

ARCHIVE AND INTERVAL

José Maçãs de Carvalho

This book brings together four texts that approach four films around the subject of the archive and which somehow epitomize key issues of photographic and videographic practice.

Since 2010, the artist’s practice has been exclusively around issues relating to the archive and its expressiveness. At the same time, this project gave rise to an academic research that crossed practice and thinking, spreading to several exhibitions.
