Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Prize honours Ana Jotta with the Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Grand Prize

30 Marçh, 2023

In addition to the Grand Prize, the Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Prize and the Friends of the Library-Museum Group Acquisition Prize will also be awarded. Entries are due between 3 April and 31 May.

The Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Grand Prize will be awarded to Ana Jotta at the 13 edition of the Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Prize on 21 October.

Born in Lisbon, Ana Jotta studied at the Lisbon School of fine Arts and the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Visuels de La Cambre in Brussels.
She began her artistic career as an actress and set designer (1976-79) with “Producões Teatrais” (Teatro Universitário, Lisbon), but her activity ended up focusing on the visual arts, especially since the mid-1980s, having participated in exhibitions in Madrid, Brussels, Johannesburg, Barcelona, among other cities.
In 2005, she had a retrospective at the Serralves Museum, and the solo shows “A Conclusão da Precedente”, at Culturgest, in 2015, and “Bónus”, in 2017, in a temporary extension of the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT), in Lisbon, also stand out.
In 2013, she won the Fundação EDP arte Great Prize and in 2014 she was honoured with the Associação Internacional de críticos de Arte Award in the field of visual arts.
Last February, the Queen Sofia Museum bought two works from the Portuguese Artist´s “September Song” series at ARCOmadrid.

Averse to labels, styles and fashions, Ana Jotta was chosen to succeed Eduardo Batarda, winner of the Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Grand Prize in 2019. This is an acquisition prize, worth 30,000 euros, which includes a work of art by the artist in the collection of the Amadeo de Souza-Carodoso Municipal Museum. The exhibition of Ana Jotta´s work at the MMASC opens on 21 October and will run until 3 March 2024.

The jury, chaired by Raquel Henriques da Silva (Art Historian and Jubilate Full Professor), and composed of Laura Castro (PhD in Art and Design), Lígia Afonso (Art Historian and Professor), Samuel Silva (Plastic Artist and Professor), and Rosário Correia Machado (Director of the Department of Culture of the Amarante City Council) state in the minutes: "The Jury unanimously decided to nominate Ana Jotta (1946) as the winner of the Amadeo de Souza Cardoso Grand Prize for the radically inventive and profoundly unique character of her work as a whole in the context of contemporary artistic production. Autonomous, libertarian, incoherent, averse, unexpected, personal, in permanent rupture with commonplaces and with herself, Ana's work is always as young as the young artists whose work it inspires."
The Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Grand Prize has already been awarded to Fernando Lanhas (1997), Fernando Azevedo (1999), Costa Pinheiro (2001), Júlio Pomar (2003), Nikias Skapinakis (2005), Ângelo de Sousa (2007), João Vieira (2009), António Sena (2011), Paula Rego (2013), Alberto Carneiro (2015), Jorge Pinheiro (2017) and Eduardo Batarda (2019).

In addition to the Grand Prize, the Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso Prize and the Friends of the Library-Museum Group Acquisition Prize will also be awarded. Entries are due between 3 April and 31 May.
