The Gallery Box
La Caja Galería maintains its commitment to representing some of the most outstanding artists of Tijuana, with representative samples of the most relevant expressions of contemporary art. Galería La Caja is a unique project housed inside an old paint warehouse located in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. At a glance, its architectural floor plan may look simple. Still, the versatility of the space creates its essence: an open gallery that on the evenings turns into a painting class and later a diner where a chef can cook given all the attendees just by sliding, turning, and moving walls.
All the resources used to refurbish and refurnish this building are 100% recycled and unprocessed, where part of the project was to look almost by hand for the materials which were waste or garbage from different sources around the city of Tijuana and San Diego, exemplified with the floor, a portion made of used wood formwork from the Culinary Art School in Tijuana, a project recently designed and built by the studio, and another fraction from wood discarded by Camp Pendleton; the ceilings, old freezer doors from a supermarket, leading to completing a project with reused goods, reaffirming the studio’s philosophy of creating low-cost architecture, where design and innovation do not have to be sacrificed.
La Caja Arte y Cultura is a space for the exhibition, creation, and promotion of the plastic arts in Tijuana. Since 2005, it has represented local, national, and international artists with great experience and supported emerging artists.
Through dissemination, it opens new horizons for artistic production in the city, in other cities in the country, and abroad. For this reason, it has an individual exhibition area and a collective exhibition area, as well as spaces intended for learning and understanding art.
It offers sales services, auctions, acquisition advice, museography, courses, workshops, and art diplomas.
Read more about La Caja’s decade-plus-long existence in a city where independent art spaces often come and go is no small achievement in an article from the Chicago Tribune.
