About Sitges Stampfli foundation Contemporary Art Gallery:

Peter Stampfli is an artist known and valued especially in France, Switzerland, Belgium and the United States. His work forms part of public and private collections in Europe, the US, Japan or Korea. He made about sixty solo exhibitions, among which are those in Centre Pompidou and the Jeu de Paume National Gallery of Paris, and around 230 collective exhibitions during his long career. Peter Stampfli was appointed Adoptive Son of Sitges in 2004

The Stampfli Foundation is located in the Plaza de l'ajuntament (Town Hall Square) in a building that was the former Fish Market built in the 1950s. When the market was closed in the early nineties this space was allocated to municipal offices.

In 2010, the town of Sitges gives part of the old market space to the Stampfli Foundation to house two halls of the Art gallery. The other hall occupies a floor at Can Mec, A building mainly dedicated to the Sitges Historical Studies Group.

Refurbishment of the old Fish Market was led by the architect Josep Maria Coll, who made a careful work of conservation and restoration of heritage, as well as adaptation of the hall for exhibits.

The Stampfli Foundation was born in 2006 (and opened in 2011) to to fulfil Peter and Anna Maria Stampfili's vision of providing a contemprary art centre for sitges to bring together works from significant artists on the international scene. All the works that make up the collection have been donated by the artists themselves, their descendents or important gallerists to form a body of contemporary art covering the past 50 years.

The Stampfli Foundation is run by a board including the Stampfli couple and the notary Lluis Jou, former Director of Language Policy of the Government. Also it has an Advisory Board composed by Serge Lemoine, former director of the Musee d'Orsay and professor emeritus at the Sorbonne; Henry-Claude Cousseau, director of Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts in Paris; art critic Daniel Giralt-Miracle, former director of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Catalonia and Lluis Jou.
