You’ve already visited the large art museums? (See our post here) Or big exhibitions just aren’t your thing? Don’t worry, there’s still plenty more to see as Seville has an exciting emerging art scene. There are many smaller galleries around the city with less established, but more up and coming local artists. We have created a list of the small galleries you need to visit, offering more modern and digestible art, and you can explore them for free!
La Caja China
This gallery features a mixture of surrealist and abstract works by a variety of local artists. If you like it the first time, go back in a month or so as they often rotate the exhibitions to new artists!

This is where you can find lesser-known contemporary artists in Sevilla. They specialise in graphics, digital, publications and sculpture editions in both cast metal (bronze or aluminium) and 3D digital prints. As it’s only a short walk from the Macarena, it’s worth a visit!
