Go for the buildings
Feb. 2020
Visited attraction recently. Had a bit of a walk to find the place then another hike to find the entrance once we got there. Only a couple of euros etc to visit. Lovely buildings but art contents a bit mmmm! Kept thinking I could put on a better display from my collection in my attic of my children's art work when they were small. Even longer walk to leave the place. Worth visiting if you have already been to all Sevilles main attractions.

Like any city pushing modern Art you might take or leave this, but the Site is worth it alone
Jan. 2020
The Monasteries Ssta. M de las Cuevas is worth wondering through regardless of whether you like the current exhibition of contemporary art or not.

Hard to figure out the layout of the exhibit. But nonetheless very interesting. Enjoy very much the Monasterio of the Cartuja.

Quirky (and therefore not to everyone's taste) but interesting
Oct. 2019
It's a bit out of the way - a walk over the bridge from the main city, or there are buses - but nothing too bad. Entry was free (not sure whether this is everyday or just the day we were there). There were three different temporary exhibitions, with an additional space just closed. As ever with modern art, it's a matter of taste. What we saw wasn't particularly ours, but it was interesting nonetheless. The building has some fabulous tiles, a few outdoor sculptures and an olive grove, which were are all quite interesting in their own right. Worth a couple of hours if you're in Sevilla for long enough but wouldn't prefer it over the more regular attractions. Might be worth considering a mooch around the nearby semi-abandoned Expo 92 site too while you're over this side of the river, which we found interesting in a slightly weird way.

Wouldn't Recommend

Quite a trek to get to as it is located out of the centre of Seville. Not the best contemporary art museum, quite strange. Interesting visit but would not recommend.

Art is personal choice!
Aug. 2019 • Couples
This centre is a little over a mile walk from the centre. Yes, there is some shade - I found it a pleasant amble in 36C unlike some reviewers...

The whole site is an exciting juxtaposition of the old monastery and the more recent ceramic works overlain with (when we were there) four exhibitions.

Unlike others comments about it being difficult to find your way around...rubbish...just open your eyes and follow the signs.

Yes some of the art won’t be to everyone’s taste. I struggled with some but loved others. That’s always the way and the point is you go along to these galleries and see a range and find out what you do enjoy - you never know you may be surprised!

At €1.80 each I can’t see how some people felt ‘mugged off’ to see such a spread.

A very pleasant way to spend an hour or two.

Not worth the effort!
Jul. 2019 • Solo
Located across the river partly in a Church or chapel and incorporating a previous school of Ceramics building this Modern Art gallery sadly was not worth the effort. The most interesting part of my visit was the buildings. The exhibitions of videos and paintings started in an old church which didn't seem to be an appropriate environment either philosophically or visually. I then moved into what was previously used ceramic school which huge kiln towers, rather like English beer brewing towers. The gallery spaces looked much more like gallery spaces in these buildings and were successful on that level but the work was very dull and uninteresting in my opinion. Not recommended.

Pros and Cons
Jul. 2019 • Business
The building itself, and the displays are absolutely amazing, and breath taking. However, there is so much wasted potential. I travel for a living, working in the art industry, and I have to say management was lacking.

An unusual collection of contemporary art
Jun. 2019 • Couples
This museum is housed across the river from the historic area. We took a taxi this morning (5€). Note that it is very hard to get a taxi back to the historic area. You will have to pay the taxi’s cost (5€) to come and get you and the additional 5€ cost to return.

As others have noted, it’s very cheap to go into this museum. The museum does not have a permanent collection as other museums do. Instead, it focuses on presenting the work of three or four artists in several small galleries. There are currently exhibits on a famous Spanish architect, although most of the exhibit is simply drawings hung on the wall. Currently, there is a good display on Guerrilla Girls (check Google). Quite humorous and in English.

The grounds and buildings are very nice and make it worthwhile to visit here. it’s a former monastery that was converted into a factory for making the famous blue and white tiles. The original chapel and crypt are open to view. It’s off the beaten track but if you can get there and back, probably worth it if you like contemporary art. Not a lot of tourists there today (Sunday).

If you find this review helpful, please give me a thumbs up. You may also be interested in my reviews of other sites in Seville, Granada, Valencia, Madrid, Barcelona and Lisbon, as well as cities in Australia and New Zealand, South America, and Southeast Asia.

Away from the madding crowd
Jun. 2019 • Couples
Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo is in a former monastery turned ceramic factory turned art gallery.

Escape the crowds of tourists in the city to explore the quiet buildings of the Santa María de las Cuevas Monastery, one of the most important monasteries of the city, built in the 15th century it housed the cloistered order of San Bruno. In 1840 the abandoned building was bought by an Englishman and transformed into a ceramic tile factory until 1982. Finally, in 1997 it became an art museum
