Gogoisme is a movement that emerged, as well as its definition, in 2016 by the art director Pedrín García and the jeweler Grego García, imitating the avant-gardes that were created in the early twentieth century as Dadaism, Surrealism, Expressionism. Movements that currently no longer occur, due to the individualism of art. The idea arose as a result of a joint work that was presented in Amaranth Joies; that same year. The work, from the beginning, was considered as a game and for it the figures of a children’s game called GOGOS were used.

These were the common thread to create a series of pieces between the two, based on the amusement. It is a work where all the materials, colors and techniques used are a tool to provoke and transmit a fresh and playful feeling.

Starting from this idea Grego Garcia and Pedrín Garcia have invited 47 artists to reinterpret the Gogoisme, whose result could be seen last year in “Amaranto Joies”, Barcelona.

Galeria Reverso thanks to Grego Garcia the opportunity to presente this exhibition in Lisbon. We are very happy with this partnership, and also invited seven portuguese artists to join this international group.
