The sixth edition of BES Revelation – an award aimed at supporting young national creators, and a partnership between Banco Espírito Santo and the Serralves Foundation – has been granted to four young artists who operate in the broad field of photography. The award includes grants for work production in a group exhibition displayed at the Serralves Museum.
Selected by an international jury including Margarida Mendes (curator and programmer of The Barber Shop space, in Lisbon), Simon Rees (chief curator of the Vilnius Centre of Contemporary Art), Simone Menegoi (Italian curator, art critic and collaborator of Kaleidoskope magazine) and Pierre Leguillon (curator and artist, Paris), the winners of BES Revelation 2010 are Mónica Baptista, Miguel Ferrão, Eduardo Guerra and Carlos Azeredo Mesquita.
This year’s edition features proposals that converge in their questioning of photography, but that are quite distinct both in terms of media – video, text that is projected or read, sculpture or 35 mm film – and in their research methods. The themes underlying the works featured here point towards fields as vast as the origin of experience as engine of phenomenological perception, serial appropriation as method, autobiographical narrative in a broad and abstract sense, the potential of narrativity or the limits of representation.

Curator: Margarida Mendes
Production: Fundação de Serralves
