Commissioned by Guimarães 2012, European Capital of Culture and curated by architect Nuno Grande, this major exhibition aimed to present nearly fifty years of professional activity of Nuno Portas. These challenge was put to Studio Andrew Howard that was responsible for the Art Direction and Exhibition Design.
The layers on the tables were created through the use of three illuminated layers – one of white perspex and the other two of tempered glass. The illuminated tables had a dual practicality. Not only did they light the work displayed but they also removed the need for any other independent lighting – the exhibition thus became self-illuminating.

Visual Approach is a series of 6 silkscreen posters limited to 25 units each. This series addresses different messages transcribed through visual compositions that communicate the author's feelings, paradigms and ideas. All the visual content works and lives in the space defined for its creation, valuing the poster in its dimension, supporting the content. The constant provocation and rousing speech, which occurs in the written and/or visual message, is a way of testing the observer, creating a sense of curiosity for objective understanding.
Some prints can be found at WhiteGrid Gallery in Berlin.
