Freijo Gallery was founded in 2010 as a project focused on working with artists from different generations, of Spanish and Latin American origin, whose work has been characterised throughout the history of modern and contemporary art by experimentation, formal and aesthetic rigour, and relevant and critical conceptual proposals.
In addition to representing mid-career artists, and with the intention of underlining the importance of intergenerational links in a dynamic and active way, we work with gallery stock: works by historical artists that have been acquired and in many cases produced by the gallery since its beginnings.
Since 2019, we have developed the LZ46 programme, focused on experimental curatorial projects, with the aim of exploring different ways of approaching exhibition practices as a gallery, as well as new ways of establishing relationships with curators, artists and collectors.
In parallel to the exhibitions, Freijo Gallery carries out an editorial activity that stems from research, in-depth analysis and dialogue with artists. Today, the gallery has a space within its premises specifically designated to house the library, which constitutes a research and documentation centre open to the public.
We complement our activities through presentations of meetings, seminars, film programmes, talks and conferences.

We develop an academic programme collaborating with students to help our artists in their archival work and have signed agreements with Università Ca'Foscari Venezia, University of Bologna, Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, The College for International Studies, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Universidad Nebrija, Universidad de Salamanca, ENSA, École nationale supérieure d'art de Limoges, UDIMA, Universidad a Distancia de Madrid.
