We know that contemporary jewellery promotes the use of any typology of materials and not necessarily precious containing not only monetary interests, but also aesthetic, symbolic and conceptual. Recently, much has happened and much has been said about the legal issues that prevent jewelers in Portugal from manipulating and selling precious metals without being subject to the same rules as industrialists.
Galeria Reverso’s new exhibition brings together a set of pieces by Portuguese jewelers (with the exception of one of the artists) and the intention to make known or remember their individual creative discourse and their path, in a selection of pieces that exist beyond these limitations ranging from the 1990s to 2019.
In this sense Até aqui unites time and space. Até inserts us in an extended time, through the retrospective presentation of a multitude of artists and the way that, over the years, have thought about contemporary jewellery, questioning and exploring new ways of looking at jewels and their value. Aqui place us in Galeria Reverso which has 20 years of existence, hundreds of exhibitions and about 65 artists represented.
In this exhibition we can find pieces by artists who have a long path in the gallery such as Manuel Vilhena, Leonor Hipólito and Filomeno Pereira de Sousa as well as more recent representations and some debuts.
