Almacén 1974 exhibition

Almacén 1974 exhibition



When in 1974 César Manrique, together with Pepe Dámaso, Luis Ibáñez and Gerardo Fontes, set up the “Centro Polidimensional El Almacén”, nobody could have imagined that this unprecedented and innovative artistic initiative would mark the future of the cultural panorama of Lanzarote.

This exhibition project deals with what it meant when El Almacén became a catalyst and backbone of the local artistic fabric. This project, part of the programme activities of Manrique 100’s, will be curated by Alejandro Krawietz, Mario Ferrer and Pepe Betancort.










In Art, the visible (form) is what is really important, because it is the representation of an idea or an intention: the image of a mobile phone. Laura Mesa’s creative processes consist of the sustained repetition of an action that implies a constant and reiterated movement during the construction of the work, almost like a mantra, through which she draws the visible form in which her works crystallize, understood as thought turned into action, condensed action in the matter of drawing.

Opening hours: Monday to Friday, 10.00 a.m. to 9.00 p.m. and Saturdays, 10.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.

Museum César Manrique’s house in Haría

Museum César Manrique’s house in Haría

The former residence of architect and artist César Manrique in Haría, where he spent the last few years until his sudden death, has been a popular tourist attraction for locals and tourists since 2013.
It offers you a good insight into the life of the famous artist, who played a major role in the painting of the island of Lanzarote.
Since 2013, this building, ” César Manrique’s house ” also known as the Palm House, has been a museum.

César Manrique's houseAlready in 1986 he started to design and build this property.
He renovated this old and run-down farmhouse, which he had already bought in the 1970s and created the surrounding area by keeping the natural atmosphere as lively as possible.
His modern visions of aesthetics and comfort have been combined with traditional architecture.
Unfortunately, Manrique could only experience the place until his accidental death in 1992, near the Fundacion Cesar Manrique in Tahiche.

Today the César Manrique’s house in Haría offers us the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the life of this famous artist for a while.
You can move freely through the rooms and also a part of the palm garden is accessible for visitors.

Most of the furniture and things that César Manrique used during his work as an artist are exactly as he had left them on the day of his death on September 25, 1992. The whole property – house, the atelier and the garden, separated from it, convey a particularly quiet and cosy atmosphere.
In the workshop where the artist painted back then, the original scenario can be seen.
Colours, tables with drawings, easels and unfinished paintings were stored as César Manrique left them.

There are also many information materials about César Manrique’s work and his extraordinary life.
A very interesting film shows deep insights into his special character.
It is therefore advisable to allow sufficient time during a visit to the César Manrique Museum.

Castillo “San José”

Castillo „San José“, Museo Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo in Arrecife, Lanzarote

This small picturesque castle is situated above the port of Puerto de los Mármoles in Arrecife. Prompted by the Spanish King Carlos III, it was built between 1776 and 1779 and only served to provide work to the local builders – not for the purpose of defence. Therefore, it obtained the name Fortaleza del Hambre (Hunger Fort). In the beginning of the 70s, the restoration of the castle was induced by César Manrique and a museum was rebuild. He also built a classy restaurant in the castle with a great view over the harbor and the sea. In the Museo Internacional de Arte Contemporáneo many Spanish works of modern art can be found – some of Manrique.

Photos inside the museum are allowed but just without flash to avoid damages at the art works.
