Portuguese multimedia artist Julião Sarmento (born 1948) rediscovered his love for painting and drawing in the 1980s. This publication celebrates Sarmento's return to these media, alongside the work of influential artists Sol LeWitt and Giorgio Morandi.
In this volume, Portuguese multimedia artist Julião Sarmento (born 1948) showcases the archive of the film critic Rui Pedro Tendinha, which features indefinably odd photos of Tendinha posing awkwardly (and often with the same hand gestures) with celebrities such as Christian Bale, Joan Cusack, Mike Myers, Will Smith, Kevin Spacey, Jon Voigt and Emily Watson.

One of the most prominent Portuguese artists of his generation, Julião Sarmento (born 1948) began exhibiting film, video, sound, painting, sculpture, installation and multimedia works in the 1970s, developing various site-specific projects and becoming famed for his silhouettes of female figures. He has exhibited his work extensively, both nationally and internationally, and, in 1997, represented Portugal at the Venice Biennale. Julião Sarmento: A Retrospective is published to coincide with an exhibition at the Serralves Museum of Contemporary Art in Porto, and features works from the late 1960s to the present. Heavily illustrated--with 180 reproductions in color, including images of all the works in the exhibition--the catalogue includes a project conceived and developed especially for it by the artist in collaboration with writer James Salter, along with short texts by John Baldessari, Douglas Gordon, Lawrence Weiner and others.

Close Distance is both an exhibition and a collaborative artist's book by Portuguese artist Julião Sarmento and British writer Adrian Searle. Searle reviews Sarmento's output in painting, sculpture, installation, performance and film, which for Searle “speaks of sex, violence, the repressed, the unconscionable and the deliberately--provocatively--inexplicable.”

Portuguese artist Julião Sarmento (born 1948) has developed a multimedia language that combines film, video, sound, painting, sculpture and installation. This is the third volume in an in-progress inventory devoted to the artist's work. It features series made from 1992-1994: Amazonas, Plateau, Cerco, Beja, Regine and The Awful Shapes of the Trees.
This first volume of a two-volume edition features a decade of work by Lisbon-born multimedia artist Julião Sarmento, who represented Portugal in the 1997 Venice Biennale. Volume 1 collects series from 1990-1992: "Dias de Escuro e de Luz," "Emma," "O Rostro das Palavras," "Pina," "New York" and "O Percurso do Sol"; volume 2 will focus on Sarmento's text-based paintings, such as "What Makes A Writer Great" (2000-2001), produced as an ironic discourse on the subject. Sarmento in fact has a particular relationship to writing: "I function almost as a writer, not in the classic sense, but simply in the sense of writing with images." Sarmento's expressive, often figurative work addresses this very tension between text and image through a combination of film, video, sound, painting, sculpture and installation, often describing psychologically charged moments of sensuality, voyeurism or transgression.
Portuguese artist Julião Sarmento is renowed for using text to build up his paintings. This volume collects the series What Makes A Writer Great, produced in 2000-2001 as an ironic essay on the matter: “I function almost as a writer, not in the classic sense, but simply in the sense of writing with images.”

Ever since his participation in the 1982 Documenta, the artistic position of Julião Sarmento has been discussed in the context of Neo-Expressionism and Trans-avantguardia. A closer look at his work, however, reveals a different development of themes and narrative elements from his filmic and photographic work of the 1970s. While the parallel use of divergent techniques and media is not an end in itself, it can serve to visualize the insoluble poles of the sensuous and the conceptual as they appear in an individual work. Echo, published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven, provides a survey of the most important aspects of Sarmento's work over the last 30 years, including works of photography, film, painting and sculpture.

One of the European artists who has best combined text, image, and movement, Julião Sarmento's multidisciplinary oeuvre evinces the tension that exists between image and word, between what is explicitly biographical and the impossibility of all forms of narration. Over the past 26 years, Sarmento's work has revealed an intimate and passionate pre-occupation with desire, explored both in the realm of the speculative and the gestural. Within his work there is no chronology, no unfolding narrative, no apparent logic--simply glimpses of experience that give visual form to primordial desires, ones felt but not defined. Working with various media, including paint, print, photography, sculpture and video, he determines to define the intangible gap between experience and memory, now and then.
