The international speaks stayed with us at Gat Rossio Hotel. An event where poets, street musicians, thinkers and much more celebrities from the Lisbon nightlife met in Gat Rossio Hotel and other landmarks of the city. We love that our customers enjoy those events that they would never find in the city guides.
Carlos Collado (Barcelona 1977) : “It moves me to observe people looking at something or someone. Perhaps it is because I identify with the person that stops to contemplate that which has caught their attention. I find that the attitude of observing the unknown and following it with the gaze reveals individuals as they truly are”. Magic Rooms & Compemplatio, are two series of photographs that were shown at the Gat Point Charlie Hotel between the 24th of September and the 29th of October 2014.
From the 27th March until the 27th May 2014, the hotel Gat Point Charlie has dedicated exhibition space to the Spanish painter Emilio Fornieles (born 1975 in Terrasa). Emilio Fornieles is a mentee of the Nobel laureate in literature José Saramago, and this opening allows our guests as well as the general public the unique opportunity of getting closer to the painter and his amazing work. Viewers will be able to enjoy series such as: “Angelitos Negros”, “Flores de Lupanar”, “Lenguaje subjetivo” and “The Wave”
Gat Rossio is always involved in Lisboa’s events and this time is naturally in too. Street poets and rappers went through Gat Rossio’s terraces…It was great and we would love to repeat. Rappers like S5pee Gozales twisted the concept of improvisation. It was simply a great afternoon in Lisboa.
The exhibition Wege ums Kino took place at the Hotel Gat Point Charlie from the 20th November until the 1st December 2013. Wege ums Kino was an exhibition of up and raising Spanish talents that took the wide world of the cinema as a starting point to elaborate a series of reflexions, re-readings and interpretations about the cinematic experience and its ability to express and produce emotions. The exhibition was built in eight theme modules, distributed among areas like the hotel lobby, the old hotel restaurant, 5 rooms on the 1st floor and the women’s toilet downstairs. These modules structured the journey through the exhibition as if it was a movie to facilitate its comprehension for the visitors.
