Gallery El Magazein
The gallery was established in 2009 and is dedicated to the promotion of diversity in culture and arts within this area. Events held so far: exhibitions of painting, sculpture and of architectural drawings and sketches, concerts (symphony orchestra, classical, jazz, pop, hip-hop), poetry readings, book presentations, lectures, theater performances and fashion shows.
The gallery has a surface area of approximately 111m2, with a ceiling height of at least 10 meters, providing more than 1000m3 of space. Because the walls are built without cement the gallery provides a good acoustical environment. The walls are covered the old-fashioned way with a mixture of lime, marl, ashes, Istrian stone dust and red clay that gives it color, but above all it makes a good sound insulation together with 25 niches, doors and windows.
Total area of the vertical walls is 500m2. Along the Portarol street there is a yard with a garden. In the summer of 2014, the City of Vodnjan has recognized the work of the gallery and has written an appreciation letter for it. The gallery also operates outside its properties and organizes exhibitions, auctions, parades and concerts elsewhere.
The gallery „El Magazein“ is proud to host artists from many countries, but above all from all continents.
