The Gibraltar Exhibitions of Modern Art – G.E.M.A., located at Montagu Bastion, Line Wall road, was officially inaugurated on Tuesday 10th November by the Minister for Culture, the Hon Steven Linares. This new gallery opened with exhibition rooms dedicated to previous winners of the three main art competitions held annually in Gibraltar; The International Art Exhibition, The Young Artist Competition and The Spring Visual Arts Competition.
The public are able to enjoy over 40 artworks encompassing mostly paintings, but also sculptures, video, installation and photography. The gallery is housed within the historical Montagu Bastion, which was recently refurbished, after having been used as a store for many years. Thus now serving the dual purpose of showcasing local art talent as well as the opening up of a new site of heritage value, for locals and tourists alike.
