📌 Mupi Gallery

👉 Ciclo "Da DERIVA" com curadoria de João Baeta


Na prática artística de Pedro Pousada, somos confrontados de forma recorrente com o desenho, a pintura, e com aquilo que poderíamos considerar derivações das narrativas gráficas, como é o caso da ilustração e da banda desenhada. Desta última «disciplina» podemos ainda recordar da integração e contaminação que inclui distintos elementos técnicos e narrativos que derivam do cinema.


Mas, os seus desenhos, e as suas pinturas, não são apenas o que aparentam, indicam diversas direções de sentido. São imagens povoadas de camadas, de ligações a múltiplas referências.

Habitualmente, não encontramos ficções com chaves interpretativas.


No entanto, nas três imagens que nos apresenta na Mupi Gallery, intituladas When you see blood in the streets.., somos confrontados com imagens e textos que remetem-nos para uma atualidade indeclinável. Interroga-nos e atira-nos para alusões vindas da história da arte e aglutina-as a determinado contexto social e político.


Elas, as imagens, interrogam-nos e questionam-se.


Apresentam-nos por isso, um jogo de relações de uma forma tão vívida, que apresentam o real dum modo absurdo e demasiado real.

MUPI Gallery

MUPI Gallery is a dedicated image gallery that was inaugurated in May 2015 in the foyer of the performance hall at Maus Hábitos. Since then, it has been hosting a diverse program of individual exhibitions by local and international artists in different states of emergence.


The primary objectives of Mupi Gallery are to support the creation of new works and visual experiences while promoting the artistic journey of the invited artists. It challenges them to present a new solo artwork that takes advantage of the unique characteristics and prominent display format. Additionally, it aims to showcase the national contemporary art scene by introducing the solid work of local artists as well as emerging names in the visual arts.

As a gallery dedicated to individual exhibitions, Mupi Gallery complements the artistic programming of Saco Azul/Maus Hábitos. It provides a contrast to the exhibition hall's program, which focuses on artistic encounters and dialogue through collective and crossover exhibitions.


Saco Azul invites one artist per month to occupy the backlit triptych, promoting the creation of works that utilize images as a means of contemporary artistic expression. Through production grants, it affirms or questions the role of images in the present day. Comprising three urban advertising communication Mupis provided by JcDecaux to Maus Hábitos, this gallery is not only interesting for its physical characteristics but also for its cultural impact and inherent commercial connotation. The artist is challenged to react or interact with this structure, embracing all its capabilities and connotations.
