The Palacio Episcopal Málaga Centro de Arte (Malaga’s Episcopal Palace and Art Centre) is an art space owned by the Diocese of Malaga which opened its doors on 4 March 2014 to continue its cultural work in service of the people of Malaga.
On 1 June 2016 it reopened with a new layout presenting two new exhibitions: “Ars Sacra” and a room for temporary exhibitions.
Under the name “Ars Sacra”, the first of the displays presents a selection of the heritage of the Diocese of Malaga. Arranged chronologically over three rooms are works created from the late 15th century to the 18th century and which were kept in the Museo de la Abadía del Císter, currently closed, in the Episcopal Palace and in various parishes of the diocese, such as Santiago, in Malaga, or the parishes of Teba, Almargen and Archidona. This display now incorporates three sculptures from the Castilian school that represent Calvary, which are on display to the public for the first time, thanks to the García Valdecasas family.
The second space presents displays of collections and pieces through temporary exhibitions of various kinds, from sacred art to contemporary art.
