Exhibitions in Madrid

Art for all in the heart of the city

Exhibitions in Madrid Exhibitions in Madrid

As a containment measure against COVID-19, and following the instructions of the public authorities, the exhibition halls will remain closed until further notice.

We have spent nearly 30 years developing a solid program of exhibitions in Madrid and around the world.

Reflecting on the origins of the modern world and combining specialist interests with those of the general public are the guidelines we have used to construct an offering that encourages access to culture for the highest possible number of people, offering new approaches and fresh perspectives from which to contemplate and present the origins of the world in which we live.

Drawing, photography, painting, sculpture? Keep an eye on our schedules. Choose your show, choose your journey.

In 2008 we inaugurated this new space and also a new phase in our scheduling, opening up to an international horizon and reinforcing it with the programing of photography.

In a former small palace on the Paseo de Recoletos, built by the architect Agustín Ortiz de Villajos between 1881 and 1884, these rooms comprise a large exhibition space spanning 1000 m2, spread over three floors.

In this space we hold fine art exhibitions that focus on the beginnings of modern art, although having carried out a thorough revision of Spanish art we then go on to explore art beyond our borders.

In 2014 we made an even firmer commitment to photography by opening a new space to house our well-established photography program.

In one of the few exhibition halls in Madrid dedicated solely to photography we run four exhibitions a year. Located next to the Fundación MAPFRE Recoletos Exhibition Hall and opposite the National Library, this modern, 563.15 m2 space has become a benchmark for all photography enthusiasts.

Van der Elsken, Nicholas Nixon, Bruce Davidson and Julia Margaret Cameron are just some of the artists that we wanted to introduce and reveal to our Madrid visitors.
