A space for art on Calle Alcalá, 31 ...

La Alcalá 31 Hall maintains a line of free and open access contemporary art exhibitions that promote and encourage accessibility to contemporary creation.

Said program specializing in visual arts at a national and international level, is interested in the diversity of languages ​​that characterize current art. Individual and collective exhibitions -focused on mid-career artists, on reviews of the careers of established artists who have suffered diverse critical fortunes and on the presentation of important art collections from Latin America coinciding with the ArcoMadrid Fair-, diversity of media and formats and incorporation of new technologies as a form of artistic expression, are some of the features that define the samples that the Sala Alcalá 31 hosts.

Located in an emblematic building by Antonio Palacios, erected between 1935 and 1943 to house the Mercantile and Industrial Bank, it currently depends on the Community of Madrid. After the extensive remodeling carried out by the architects José Luis Iñiguez de Onzoño and Ignacio de las Casas, the building was inaugurated in 2002 to house the offices of what was then called the Ministry of Arts and the exhibition hall.

The General Subdirectorate of Fine Arts of the Community of Madrid is in charge of managing this space, together with the Canal de Isabel II Hall and Young Art Room.
