Alalimón Galería

Tuesday to Saturday: 11 am - 8 pm

Alalimón is born under the idea that the union makes the force, conjugating the previous work of two galleries: Art Deal project and El Catascopio with their respective lines of work and previous baggage. Both will share location and initiatives to expand towards new creative talents and strengthen the authors with whom they usually work.

Alalimón devises, organizes, manages, produces and sets up exhibition projects in a complete way. It makes a space and management available to new galleries or those outside the city, making it possible to transfer the concept of artistic residences to the galleries by creating a nursery for creativity.
