Museo de Arte de Almeria - Espacio 2/ Contemporary Art

This museum is the other section of the Art Museum of Almeria, alongside the Museo de Arte Doña Pakyta, which is housed in a period building.

Next to the Ayuntamiento (Town Hall), the Art Museum's sleek contemporary building, referred to as Espacio 2,houses the city's contemporary art collection, from 1980 onwards (the other building is 1870-1970).

The building has a permanent collection on the ground floor and temporary exhibitions, usually of contemporary artists, on the upper floors.

This collection was previously housed in a beautiful neomudejar building from 1927 on the same plaza, which is now being restored.

Vanguard artists whose work is displayed include Antonio Lopez. Four rooms display the works, which including paintings, sculpture and photography in neo-realistic and figurative styles. The museum is run jointly by the Fundacion de Arte Ibañez-Cosentino and the Ayuntamiento de Almeria.
