Art galleries in Malaga

In the heart of the old town, on Calle Niño de Guevara, is the Benedito Gallery, which has regularly been organising contemporary exhibitions reflecting the latest trends since 1985. Its facilities show works by both established and emerging artists, whilst always being committed to quality and the dissemination of art and culture. Upon the understanding that art should reach all audiences, they organise different activities such as workshops and book publishing, to name but a few. 

Not far from the heart of the city, on Calle Santos, is La Casa Amarilla, a non-profit cultural association for contemporary art and culture. Since the beginning of its activity in 2008, La Casa Amarilla has focused on artists, their needs and their inclusion on the art scene, as well as on training to reach new audiences and cultural management.

Across from the church of San Juan, the importance of intaglio engraving is put on display at the Taller Gravura Gallery. Other activities include commissioned publishing, workshops and training classes. The exhibition has its own special place, mainly dedicated to graphic works, works on paper and sculptures. The workshop's collection includes works by artists such as Paco Aguilar, the driving force behind the gallery, José Faria, Enrique Brinkmann, Chema Lumbreras, Óscar Pérez, Michele Lehmann and Lorenzo Saval, and many more.

Walking along the elegant Alameda Principal you can access the Yolanda Ochando art consultancy, dedicated to graphic art, artist's books, photography and sculptures.
Founded in 2004, it offers personalised advice to collectors as well as to occasional art buyers. They have a wide collection of works, ranging from the avant-garde of the 20th century to the most acclaimed national and international artists, without forgetting emerging artists and paying special attention to female artists.

In the Soho Art Quarter, the ultimate expression of urban and street art, is the JM Gallery, which since 2001 has been managed by Javier Marín and is focused on the promotion of plastic and visual artists through exhibition proposals in its halls. The space is dedicated to current languages, concepts and forms, where we are able to reflect on issues that affect society and its form in a global way.

Also in Soho, on Calle San Lorenzo, Ignacio del Río opened an exhibition space in 2012 where you can see works by emerging and established artists such as Antonio Yesa, Sebastián Navas, José Seguiri, Concha Galea, Rafael Alvarado, Mónica Vázquez Ayala and Eugenio Rivas. In El Estudio de Ignacio del Río there is room for a wide contemporary artistic segment, focusing on the conceptual current of art and all its techniques and manifestations.

The Isabel Hurley Gallery is located on Paseo de Reding in La Malagueta, and its project focuses on the work of emerging, mid-career and established artists. In addition to its numerous exhibitions, there are periodicals, and they are constantly collaborating with critics, curators and various institutions. The programme embraces all forms of contemporary creation, including emerging technologies such as Augmented Reality and NFTs.

The passion for art spreads to other areas of Malaga, as is the case of the Espacio Tres Art Gallery in the Ciudad Jardín neighbourhood. This space is linked to contemporary art and gets involved with artistic exchanges with other international galleries. Its hall is open for visits and exhibitions by appointment on Calle Moscatel.

Lastly, the Gacma Experience Gallery has more than 500 square metres of modern facilities dedicated to contemporary art in the Santa Bárbara Business Park. Its concept is based on two physically independent spaces, a temporary exhibition area and a permanent exhibition area with the gallery's collection. It also has a library where you can check out books on the different authors whose works have graced the gallery with their presence. It also offers the public complementary activities to broaden their knowledge and understanding of contemporary art.
