All Women Art Show | J. Mane Gallery
January 2021
Online Group Exhibition

J. Mane Gallery is pleased to present its 3rd All Women International Online Juried Art Exhibition.

Women artists have been making art throughout history, however their work, when compared to their male counterparts, tends to be overlooked and undervalued. Women artists are often faced with challenges due to gender biases in the fine art world.

Therefore,  we are honoring women artists.  We invited artists to submit work that best represents themselves as artists.  All artists over the age of 18, regardless of location or experience, were encouraged to submit their best art and photography.

Heaven is a Place Where Nothing ever Happens | Janus Project
May 2020
Group Virtual Exhibition in Pousio, lisbon

"Heaven is a Place Where Nothing ever Happens" - Carmo Pinheiro de Melo 's work is exhibited alongside amazing artists in the new current virtual exhibition curated by Duarte Amado and designed by Constança Vasconcelos Dias.

 

Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens explora a privação do testemunho físico e da participação como crise ou superação da “normalidade” como mediadora da condição do “real”, do sentido, do estatuto de experiência e da definição de lugares próprios. Sujeitos, rituais e objetos resvalam entre candidatos artísticos, artefactos ou meras propriedades visuais do campo virtual.

Turns out it was never There | Janus Project
May 2020
Group Virtual Exhibition in Pousio, lisbon

"Turns out it was never there" - Carmo Pinheiro de Melo 's work is exhibited alongside amazing artists in the new current virtual exhibition curated by Ana Begonha and designed by Marta Vaz da Silva.

 

These works focus on the juxtaposition and deconstruction of bodies, spaces and languages between the digital and the material spheres. Departing from this idea, the exhibition seeks to explore the ways in which the transferring and overlapping of imagined (virtual) and tangible (material) realities alter our perception on the virtuality and materiality of the bodies and spaces they form, affecting their presence. Moreover, it explores how these bodies and spaces mutually construct the organizational structures of the realities that produce them.

In a sense, Turns out it was (never) there questions the separation between these categories and the idea that things can only gain substance by means of their bodily existence and not their imagination. Not seeking to explore the barriers between the digital and the material world, but hoping to transform our given notions about them, the exhibition tries to find clues that show us how to move from one sphere to the other.
