    About

    The Galería Javier López opened its doors in London in June 1995 with a programme of contemporary art, including projects by X-Art Foundation, Martin Creed, Simon Martin and Thomas Ruff. Since February 1996, when it transferred to Madrid, the gallery’s goal has been to show a programme that alternates between presenting the work of young artists and exhibitions by more established figures to give a complementary view of the scope of contemporary art.

    In November 2010, Javier López opened a premier space in Madrid to move his gallery from the city centre to an exceptional building designed by renowned architectural firm Vicens + Ramos, situated in a privileged location right at the edge of El Pardo national park, in La Florida, Madrid. The dialogue between the architecture and landscape creates a unique environment where exhibitions are planned with an approach along the lines of a Kunsthalle, lasting longer to provide a complete picture of an artist's work.

    Since February 2011 the gallery has operated exclusively in this new space, where we aim to present a dynamic programme of both emerging and recognized artists who are creating exceptional and innovative work, taking part in the latest trends in contemporary art, and whose production and approaches are open to the latest techniques and whatever kind of surface.
