MIA Art Collection
The feminist look of Alejandra Castro Rioseco, philanthropist and private collector has motivated her to create a unique collection that expresses the view of the women artist, bearing in mind the discrimination and gender rights inequalities women are confronted with still.
The collection truly of women, created by women, seeks to create visibility of women and their work in the world through various art projects.
MIA Art Collection builds on a multidisciplinary team and global network to support participation in museums, art fairs, amongst others.
The MIA art collection is available and supportive of expositions centred around women artists and their participation in activities visualizing the role of women in the arts.
The MIA project encourages education through private and public seminars, workshops and expositions on a global scale.

Manuel Expósito Collection
“Our collection is an eclectic tour of artists from the 1950s to the present day. The evolution of the collection began in 1995 with the purchase of a first multiple piece, since then it has been completed with the artistic currents of those years to contemporary art today, through works of art pop, street art, hyperrealism and conceptual with critical character. We are currently betting on young national artists, whose work moves us and transmits sensations to us; with this we are trying to support, as far as possible, the current artistic panorama.”
