About the Portuguese Emerging Art Catalogue 2017
The Portuguese Emerging Art catalogue 2017, is an annual publication whose main goal is to promote the work produced by emerging Portuguese artists, resident in Portugal or abroad. It is an unprecedented publication in Portugal that intends to show creative and current visual proposals. With this editorial object, we want to renew the look on the contemporary artistic production, revealing new artists, and to reveal internationally the work done by them.
Artists with Portuguese nationality aged between 21 and 45 years competed individually, in duo or collective, with a work, a series or an artistic project that has been accomplished or not. 87 applications were received in the following artistic categories: digital art / new media art, artistic ceramics, drawing, sculpture, photography, installation, performance, painting, sound art and video art. Were selected 56 works.
After the selection, there was a balance between male and female candidates: more specifically 50%.
The 2017 edition includes theoretical reflections of the members who make up the selection jury of the works of art. Cover design by Jorge dos Reis.
