Created and directed by Paula Crespo, Galeria Reverso is a platform for contemporary art jewelry. Located in Lisbon and housed in a building covered with painted tiles, Reverso is made up of a bright, light gallery, with a workshop and work area at the back of the building were jewelry designed by Paula Crespo or specially commissioned pieces are produced.
Since 1998, the gallery has organized four to five exhibitions a year, featuring both national and international artists whose work is considered relevant on the conceptual level, and also in regards to design and technique. Reverso aims to reveal established international names, but also to promote young talents and provide them an opportunity to exhibit their work, giving it greater visibility at both the national level and abroad through either individual or collective exhibitions.
Reverso represents around 60 artists whose works are on permanent display in the gallery. As a way of enriching and stimulating creativity, Reverso also produces limited series of jewels and objects with the collaboration of artists from different artistic fields, bringing together different languages and perspectives. To commemorate Reverso’s anniversaries, three bilingual catalogs have been published up to this point in time.
