A sprawling precinct of 48 industrial buildings formerly used as a slaughter house and livestock market up until 1996 when it was acquired by the Madrid City Council and completely refurbished in order to become a contemporary arts centre. The Matadero is a laboratory of interdisciplinary creativity closely connected to the city of Madrid, situated in the Arganzuela district, between the city centre and the Manzanares river, the activities include cinema, performing arts, visual arts and artist residencies. The Matadero represents a necessary foil to the city’s extraordinary classical art collections ensuring a continuation of the city’s visual arts culture into the 21st Century.
