The CAC Málaga is a cultural initiative of The City Council of Malaga. Its aim is the promotion and dissemination of 20th- and 21st-century visual art.
The project is an innovative one within Spain as it combines models of private management with the aims and ideals of public administration.
The CAC Málaga was officially opened on 17 February 2003 by Their Royal Highnesses the Infanta Cristina and her husband, Iñaki Urdangarín, Dukes of Palma.
A pioneering new project was thus launched, based on the model of the German “Kunsthalle” and characterised by its dynamic nature and its emphasis on the dissemination of contemporary art and reflection on the issues involved in this field.
The opening of the CAC Málaga has opened up new cultural possibilities in the south of Spain and the centre was specifically created with the intention of becoming an international reference point.
