Hilario Galguera Gallery is a space for production, promotion, registry and discussion of contemporary art.
Founded in 2006, the gallery is hosted in an early 20th Century manor from the times of Porfirio Díaz in one of Mexico City’s oldest neighbourhoods, San Rafael. From 2008 to 2011 the gallery opened a space in Leipzig, Germany, in a 19th Century yarn factory, thus becoming the first Mexican gallery with a space in Europe. Since 2012 it keeps an office in Berlin.
From its very beginning, the gallery has focused on generating exhibitions and projects by Mexican and international artists, of emerging, mid and consolidated careers, and has participated in Mexico and abroad with initiatives that support the artists it represents. The gallery’s philosophy is to bestow artists with the possibility to act on the global art scene and to create and develop aesthetical and conceptual discourses in the frame of the idea of Mexico as an entity that has deeply influenced creativity, knowledge, science and creation for the last 500 years. Hilario Galguera Gallery is considered a pioneer on presenting consolidated international artists to local public and a supporting platform for the integral development of its Mexican artists’ careers.
The gallery organised Damien Hirst’s first show in Latinamerica as well as major projects with Daniel Buren and Jannis Kounellis. Mexican artists such as Mauricio Limón, Daniel Lezama, Bosco Sodi and Benjamín Torres have been widely promoted since the beginning of their careers and in their process of consolidation.
Represented artists: Gustavo Artigas, James hd Brown, Daniel Buren, Jan De Cock, Cristóbal Gracia, Damien Hirst, Athina Ioannou, Jannis Kounellis, Francisco Larios, Daniel Lezama, Mauricio Limón, Oliver Marsden, Bosco Sodi, Benjamín Torres y Peter Wüthrich.

Galeria Filomena Soares was founded in 1999, in Lisbon. Its main objective is to incentive contemporary artistic production, by furthering a productive dialogue between artists, curators and institutions working in the Portuguese and international art scenes.
The gallery stands in the east side of Lisbon, an area that was, for decades, an industrial pole of great importance to the city’s growth and is today one of its largest urban reconversion sites. The gallery’s space (approx. 1000m2) includes two exhibition rooms with different sizes and facilities, which allow it to host a large variety of exhibitions and other artistic events. The gallery has, from very early on, been producing monographs on contemporary art that can be browsed in one of the rooms reserved for visitors.
The gallery’s programming is guided by a strategy aimed at establishing long-time associations with authors working in every field of artistic expression. The gallery’s participation in important contemporary art fairs, as well as its collaborations with international curators – such as David Rimanelli, Rosa Martinez, Jurgen Bock, David Rosenberg, David Barro or Alexandre Melo – is one of the prospective lines it keeps constantly developing within this context.
Galeria Filomena Soares represents the following artists:
Ângela Ferreira, Bruno Pacheco, Carlos Motta, Dan Graham, Daniel Senise, Dias & Riedweg, Didier Faustino, Günther Förg, Helena Almeida, Herbert Brandl, Jaime de la Jara, João Penalva, João Tabarra, Kiluanji Kia Henda, Miguel Rio Branco, Pedro Barateiro, Peter Zimmermann, Pilar Albarracín, Rodrigo Oliveira, Rui Chafes, Santiago Parra, Shirin Neshat, Slater Bradley and Susy Gómez
