Museum of Quijote features new project: The MIQ Gallery

Share This

The Guanajuato Museum of Quijote (Museo Iconográfico del Quijote) is currently undertaking a new path as a cultural center: The MIQ Gallery. Commonly known as a space featuring art & craft exhibits related to Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra’s “Don Quixote“, Museum of Quijote in entering a new phase:

With the purpose of promoting national artistic talent, the museum extends a network that allows the generation of quality cultural products, aimed at creating audiences, feedback with professional gallerists and artistic creators. In this way the MIQ supports plastic work and disseminates artistic projects, through its approach to the public in a space of exhibition and sale.

Through a new management strategy, the MIQ Gallery seeks to boost the consumption of quality artistic work and the generation of economic resources for both the museum and the artists.

This new challenge consolidates MIQ in the path it took four years ago as a cultural center, in a quest to nurture its billboard through the dissemination of art in general and the creation of a collection of its own. This is a new commitment with artists and with art itself.

The MIQ gallery was conceived in conjunction with the VM & Cía business cultural concept, established by the pianist and organist Víctor Manuel Morales, which, in addition to an art gallery, also involves a production house and emerges as a need to position artistic production as a consumer good completely apart from ephemeral trends and fashions, being able to achieve economic sustainability.

As a production house, it has been almost two years since its foundation, collaborators of important companies and cultural institutions, such as the National Fund for Culture and the Arts, ARGESA, Quindecim Recordings, Urtext Digital Classics, Mexican Music Editions A.C.

As an Art Gallery, its catalogue includes pieces by the most important Mexican artists such as Rufino Tamayo, Pedro Coronel, José Cháves Morado, Alfredo Zalce, Guillermo Meza, Byron Gálvez, Sergio Hernández, Flor Minor, Carmen Parra, Nunik Sauret among others. With nearly a hundred sales made to date, as a result of the solidity and honor of the project, coupled with the certainty that generates investment in works of great artists.
