MEU AMIGO (MY FRIEND) - Works and documents from the Ernesto de Sousa Collection at MNAC - 05-18-/-09-26- 2021 Exhibition organized by Isabel Alves with texts and set up by Emília Tavares Helena Almeida – Untitled (Meu Amigo), © Helena Almeida Estate Foto © José Manuel Costa Alves The work of Helena Almeida - Meu Amigo (My Friend)- which gives the title to the exhibition, symbolizes the sharing and artistic companionship that punctuated Ernesto de Sousa's entire life. His aesthetic, historical and critical activity developed from neorealism to the most revolutionary neo-avant-garde of the 60s and 70s, including the dawns of post-modernity and reference studies on popular sculpture. The actions and art projects he carried out were always marked by multiple relationships of creative complicity, which are very evident in the multiplicity and representativeness of the works in his collection.por These artists and these works are an emotional and aesthetic resonance of Ernesto de Sousa's unique path, and also allow us a retrospective look at the panorama of contemporary Portuguese art and its international context.

Sneed completed her Ph.D. in art history at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY), U.S., in 2019, where her research focused on Conceptual and avant-garde art practices of the 1960s–1980s in the Americas and the Lusophone World, with a focus on the contributions of women artists to these histories.

In praise of impurities in the historiography of art: Ernesto de Sousa and the study of Portuguese sculpture

Maria Manuela Restivo, in MODOS, magazine of history of art, – volume 4 | no. 3 | september– december 2020 | ISSN: 2526-2963 267, UNIVERSIDADE ESTADUAL DE CAMPINAS/ UNIVERSIDADE FEDERAL DO RIO DE JANEIRO In praise of impurities in the historiography of art: Ernesto de Sousa and the study of Portuguese sculpture. Abstract : This article focuses on the investigations of Ernesto de Sousa (1921-1988), artist and art theorist, around Portuguese sculpture. It is argued that the research he carried out, regarding both the aspects in which it was developed and the methodologies he used, presents evident warburguian echoes and, consequently, should be inserted in an alternative historiography of art, which is conceptualized here through the concept of impurities. Developing a different way of looking at the history of Portuguese art, based either on a different perception of historical time and on the leveling between popular art and erudite art, Ernesto de Sousa opens a new path in Portuguese artistic historiography. Keywords Ernesto de Sousa. Impurities. Folk Art. Polarization.

Ernesto de Sousa KEEP IN TOUCH

The exhibition ERNESTO DE SOUSA: KEEP IN TOUCH (06-04 - 11-05-2019) at Diferença Gallery gathers a group of works and documents that belong to the Isabel Alves and Ernesto de Sousa’s private collection. The invitation Isabel made to Pedro Barateiro and Ricardo Valentim to organize organize this exhibition came up in a conversation between friends. The documents gathered are from drawings to envelopes and correspondence that Isabel and Ernesto maintained with a group of friens, most of them artists and people working within the portuguese and international cultural scene. The drawings in envelopes, photographs and objects will be presented as part of a living archive that is made of documents, art works and editions that constitute the network of realtions maintained by Isabel and Ernesto. Among the objects exhibited there is a hat made by Ernesto to is friend Robert Filliou, but also correspondence wil Daniel Buren, a preparatory drawing to Além - Tejo, Vos - Tejo by Wolf Wostell, the catalogue of Documenta V together with a group of swiper-slides taken when Isabel and Ernesto visited the exhibition, along with group of intervened invitations by Helena Almeida for her shows at Galeria Diferença and Galeria Quadrum, among many other things. The work Ernesto has made evokes the necessity of the collective in search of the singularity and subjectivity of each person. To present this collection’s works and documents is a necessity. To look at Isabel and Ernesto’s archive is, on one hand a tool to think how portuguese visual arts has been taking care of itself through a newtwork of relations that are many times taken as autophagic; and on the other hand reflects the lack of a more definied narrative for portuguese culture in a country that many times seems to be not so interested in itself. But Ernesto’s work has always tried to build a narrative that escapes categorization. The idea that art is present in many things, not only in isolated and easily capitalized art works is a possible reading of Ernesto’s production, manifested by the books, postcards, letters, envelopes, drawings, scultptures, paintings and the films that surrounded him. The necessity to keep presenting the work and archive of Isabel Alves and Ernesto de Sousa comes from the multiplicity of connections that they’ve always kept, and still do, with a group of nacional and international agents. On the occasion a brochure was published by Isabel Alves, Pedro Barateiro e Ricardo Valentim, in a limited edition of 30 copies. https://www.rtp.pt/play/p5355/e400017/as-horas-extraordinarias?fbclid=IwAR3bhhYY5cgcRHUKiSfLNk0Zqu74FZXjlWRuUBvJt8A-jmkZsbdU_HtIg5w

Exhibition "Ernesto de Sousa Contact Sheets, 1972-1980 and Olympia, 1979" at Galeria Quadrado Azul (Lisbon)

Exhibition "Ernesto de Sousa Contact Sheets, 1972-1980 and Olympia, 1979" at Galeria Quadrado Azul (Lisbon) Partial view of "Olympia" This exhibition - which presents Ernesto de Sousa contact sheets from the 1970s - allows us to understand how he learned to use photography as a tool to explore some of his fundamental concerns: the permanent collaborative spirit (it’s no accident that many of the "motifs" represented herein are his fellow artists), the interchangeable relationship between distant periods of times, in particular antiquity and the avant-gardes (e.g. the reference to Olympia, or to Luiz Vaz), the capacity for fragmentation, repetition and unusual relations of scale, in order to redefine our relationship with familiar objects and disciplines. The relationship between these photographs and the cinema is also particularly curious. It’s important to remember that Ernesto de Sousa produced one of the most important films of Portuguese new cinema in the 1960s - Dom Roberto (1962, Young Critics' Prize at Cannes). These contact sheets also make us think about Andy Warhol's famous Screen Tests (1964-1966) and might be viewed as location scouting for never-to-be-made films. Ricardo Nicolau

he Promised Land –in the exhibition The Accidental Photographer at Culturgest

The Promised Land – Requiem for Vilarinho das Furnas, 1979, at the Accidental Photographer at Culturgest The Promised Land – Requiem para Vilarinho das Furnas, 1979 integrates "The Accidental Photographer Serialism and Experimentation in Portugal, 1968-1980", curated by Delfim Sardo. This exhibition is an attempt to map the critical and conceptual use of photography by visual artists in Portugal. The performance took place at the opening with the reading of texts by Freud, Fucault, the Bible, similar to the performance at the opening at SNBA in 1980. The exhibition also includes works by Alberto Carneiro, Ângelo de Sousa, Fernando Calhau, Helena Almeida, Jorge Molder, José Barrias, Julião Sarmento and Vítor Pomar. A catalogue was launched with texts by Delfim Sardo, Sérgio Mah, Ernesto de Sousa, Eduardo Batarda, Fernando Pernes, Leonel Moura and Alberto Carneiro. Covering a period that was heavily marked by the Revolution of 25 April, 1974, the exhibition reveals the important changes taking place in Portuguese art at what proved to be a difficult time for the cultural inscription of artists' proposals. As this represents the first attempt to present this fascinating creative panorama, the exhibition also provides a rare opportunity to understand the transformations in the uses that were made of photography. 19 May-3 September 2017

Novo Amor - The reinvention of love

It took as its point of departure the toughts and imaginings of Ernesto de Sousa on the subject of love, and the reinvention of love - ideas that date back to the 60's and were revisited over time by the artist.
