The Galerie Mermoz, one of the exhibitors you can’t miss at PAD Geneve 2019, dedicates itself to pre-Columbian Mesoamerican and South American arts since 1970. From the beginning, it is internationally celebrated as one of the finest references in this field.
Through time, this art gallery was successful in bringing to the light the mysteries about the richness of civilizations such as the Olmec (900 – 600 B.C.), Mezcala (350 – 100 B.C.), Colima (100 B.C.– A.D. 250), Maya (450 – 750 A.D) as well as cultures from Peru (Nazca, Mochica, Chimu…) and Costa Rica.
Its owner, Santo Micali, is a pioneer and expert for 40 years, who loves to share his passion for Pre-Columbian Art by showcasing his exquisite collection composed of the finest quality and carefully curated pieces. He contributed to the rising of major American and European art collections, and also collaborates with famous museums and private collectors.
His knowledge and advice are always treasured. Some of the gallery’s extraordinary pieces are exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago (Chicago), the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), the Musée du Quai Branly (Paris), the Museum aan de Stroom (MAS – Antwerp) and the Miho Museum (Kyoto).
