MINIM is a shop-showroom of furniture and lightning of contemporary design with presence in Madrid and Barcelona. A specialised team and a fine selection of products from the best national and international firms allow us to assist our customers in creating contemporary, elegant and functional interior spaces.
At MINIM we have developed a long sponsorship role around arquitechture, art, design, music or gastronomy because we consider our corporate activity as an opportunity to share those things we love with our customers and friends.
According to this philosophy, MINIM Art is born; a new MINIM venture that pretends to bring contemporary art closer to the public in Madrid in a non-conventional ambiance. MINIM Art is proposed as a meeting point between design and art in its different appearances: painting, sculpture, drawing, video, installations, etc.
Regularly, MINIM Art will program exhibitions of renowned national and international artists with a peculiarity: since this is not a traditional gallery, artists will need to propose projects conceived explicitly for our space. So their art pieces will need to dialogue with those items of contemporary design found in our showroom. To achieve this we have the expertise of Emilio Navarro an experienced professional that worked as director of Museo de Caja de Burgos for 12 years.
Among the commissioned exhibitions during this period we can mention those of individual artists with a solid career as Alex Arrechea, Carlos Garaicoa, Geert Goiris, Cao Guimaraes, Lucía Koch, Meiro Koizumi, Zilla Leutenegger, María Loboda, Mateo Maté, Iván Navarro, Hans Op de Beeck, Jorge Pardo, Perejaume, Pedro Reyes, Georges Rousse, Hiraki Sawa, David Shrigley, Lucy Skaer and Marcel Van Eeden.
As a commissioner at MINIM Art, Emilio will be in charge of selecting artists and will collaborate with them and with MINIM team in the selection of pieces and in the exhibition design.
