About gallery x-ist
x-ist is an art gallery founded in 2004 in order to support both young and mid-career contemporary artists in their professional endeavors.
At x-ist, we welcome the future of contemporary art based on international criteria. We present and promote talents that are worth discovering worldwide, strive for their visibility and rise on a universal platform.
The artists at x-ist are not mere employees but the real owners of the institution. The gallery aims to sustain their positive contribution to the system through an objective appraisal of their ideas and suggestions which is independent of time and space.
At x-ist we champion ideals, not ideologies. We know and respect the fact that superior artistic production will, in due time, obtain an identity as an idealist statement.
At x-ist we are neither elitists nor populists. We do not take sides other than that of art, we do not serve a privileged few, we are egalitarians and we believe art is for the masses.
At x-ist we take risks and encourage others to do the same. We reject a pure materialistic mentality as well as all productions that do not question the system and go down the easy road.
At x-ist we defend the unbreakable unity between a fine idea and a superb application which in turn necessitates a precise construction of the relationship between content and context.
At x-ist we reject status quo and advocate creative movement. We envisage the evolution of a healthy and non-simulative learning process only through its own internal dynamics.
At x-ist we embrace teamwork; we oppose the hegemony of one man. We support, brainstorm and exercise all kinds of motivational ideas for our employees who form the backbone of our institution.
