Pristine Galerie opened the doors to its actual headquarters in Monterrey, Mexico with a clear and defined mission: to promote the artistic creation of first-rate contemporary visual producers, both emerging and established. The gallery has worked from its beginning to function as the catalyst and vehicle of an interaction between Monterrey and the most important institutional and commercial platforms of contemporary art in America, Europe and Asia.
To this day, a unique selection of artists has been formed, from diverse fields, including sound art, video, painting, graphic arts, photography, performance, installation and sculpture, some of whom have participated in the best biennials and contemporary art fairs in the world, and/or form part of major private and public collections, such as the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City.
In a 6500 ft2 four stage building, the gallery blends elements of avant-garde design and contemporary artworks by its many artists, constantly rotating them as the temporary exhibitions change in two of its floors, where it usually showcases two exhibitions simultaneously, generating an unusual dialogue between the artworks of the artists being shown, national and international, for which the Gallery’s Board has chosen to work with featured curators, who put together for Pristine Galerie world-class art exhibitions.
Besides making a social occurrence of all our exhibition openings, we frequently organize seminars and talks with the gallery’s artists, providing the opportunity for a real conversation and greater level of intimacy between collectors, artists, curators, critics and art enthusiasts, thus encouraging the observation, updating, and discourse in the creative community, as an artistic center that offers a meeting space, for investigation, artistic formation and the development of projects towards an impulse of the visual arts.
The gallery also offers consultation services to collectors, architects and designers, in the selection, conservation and exhibition of artworks, according to their needs, individuality and objectives. Pristine Galerie’s Lounge Terrace is also available for rentals for private events and functions, such as conferences, workshops, dinners, tastings, business meetings, video projections, photo shoots, press conferences, music events, public readings, etc.
Without doubt in our gallery you will find key pieces to add to your collection (or begin it!).
