Prometeo Gallery was born on the initiative of Ida Pisani, in 2005 based in Milan and Lucca. The program has always stood out as a catalyst for the social and political demands of multimedia visual artists.
The space opens with the Perra project by the Guatemalan artist Regina Josè Galindo, who -in the same 2005- won the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale as “Best Artist Under 35”.
Among the gallery artists invited over the years to the Venice Biennale: Moudov, Stampone, Josè Galindo, Zygouri, Tsivopoulos, Hiwa K.
The first exhibition by the Spanish master Santiago Sierra dates back to 2007. Among the gallery's milestones, Galindo, Sierra’s and Zehra Doğan shows at the PAC- Milan.
At the last edition of Documenta there were 4 artists represented by the gallery: Tsivopoulos, Galindo, Zygouri, Hiwa K. The Kurdish-Iraqi artist Hiwa K subsequently exhibited at the New Museum in New York.
In 2021, Galindo’s work Tierra (2013) has become part, of the MoMA’s collection in New York as the third work of the artist acquired by the museum. In the same year Regina was awarded the "Robert Rauschemberg Award".
In 2019 the gallery begins to represent the work of Kurdish_turkish artist Doğan, that exhibited at Drawing Center in New York. She was included in the "Power 100" by Art Review in 2020 and 2021. Her drawings have been published in the graphic novel Prison N°5.
