It also promotes and collaborates with young, mid-career artists. The gallery offers a rigorous, ever-changing programme that has the collaboration of many different curators and critics. Likewise, Galería Pelaires carries out an intimate project that is clearly committed to the region where it is located, a place with a strong international influence.
Pelaires' goal is to provide room for contemporary artists who reflect the complex and diverse current scene, even if they do so using very different languages and aesthetic approaches.
Pelaires Gallery was founded by Pep Pinya in 1969 in Palma. In 1990 it relocated from Pelaires Street to the emblematic 17th-century historic building that now houses its premises. Today, the two-storey building hosts exhibitions all year long.
Galería Pelaires has been uninterruptedly offering an international artistic programme for the last 50 years. It has exhibited works by artists such as Miró, Picasso, Boetti, Tàpies, Calder, Chillida, Lüpertz, Kounellis, Rebecca Horn, Brossa and Beuys -amongst many others. Furthermore, the generation change in Pelaires has provided new opportunities to artists such as Carlos Amorales, Alice Channer, Idris Kahn, Gregor Hildebrandt, Jorinde Voigt, Christian Jankowski or Jason Martin.
Apart from representing and supporting artists, Pelaires has also backed creative minds from other disciplines from the very beginning. In fact, the gallery has welcomed some of the most prominent intellectuals from the second half of the 20th century who have visited the island in the past.

When Rebecca Horn was in art school, she used fiberglass and polyester as sculptural materials. They soon damaged her lungs, forcing her to spend a year in a sanitarium. The months of isolation led to a reappraisal of her sculptural medium. After she was released, she started sculpting own body.
Over the past several years, artist Claudia Peña Salinas has narrowed the focus of her practice to two Aztec water deities: Tláloc and Chalchiuhtlicue. Her research into the subject is as much personal as it is political. Peña Salinas was born in Montemorelos, Mexico, and now lives and works in New York City.
