Art Gallery
“This foundation works hard to paint a picture of the contemporary art world in this space. You’ll always find a good mix of international and local artists on display, both established names and up-and-comers who are doing something new and interesting. There are two big exhibition rooms, so you can see quite a bit in one visit. The foundation’s vegan cafe is superb! I love the pan esenio, which is a wheat germ bread sweetened with dates. They also make an excellent green juice.”

Out front there’s an outstanding exhibition space where renowned artists such as Okuda, San, Henry Chalfant & Sharp, Tilt, Inocuo, Aryz, Suso33, Steve Harrington, Loomit, Alex Fakso, and Mark Bodé have shown their work.”
