Sketches for an Anthology is an artist monograph that addresses fifteen years (from 1999 to 2014) of André Guedes’s artistic practice.


The four outlines for anthological exhibitions that this book is presenting were organized by four different authors. They range from the anthological exhibition as a dialogue proposed by João Mourão and Luís Silva with André Guedes, which rejects the role of the artist as a simple object for study, thus recuperating him as a subject who plays an active role in the task of considering his own work, to the anthological exhibition as a performing text put forward by Pedro Neves Marques, which set out a contemporary historical and political narrative through the artist’s work. Liliana Coutinho's visual anthological proposal is centered on the ethical and aesthetic possibilities of making a community not only as a thematic approach but also as a modus operandi. Finally the exhibition-essay proposed by Chris Sharp puts forth a reading of Guedes’s work based on an idea of affective proximity made possible by a coming together of people, whether already acquainted or not. These proposals make up very different views of the same artistic activity and  present a complex, non-linear and problematizing portrait of one of the most relevant bodies of work that have been carried out recently in Portugal.
