The Annexe Gallery, located in the Central Market Annexe building, was launched in January 2007 as a centre for contemporary arts.
Perfectly complementing the more traditional Central Market, The Annexe Gallery provides spaces for the ongoing expression of present generations. Since our opening, we have attracted countless youths and adults seeking ideas, insights and inspiration.
We have an eclectic programmme of events, some of which we organise ourselves or organise in collaboration with other creative types, and others are by parties which pay us rent to use our venue for their events.
Our regular collaborators include: the U.S. Embassy, Goethe Institute, Japan Foundation, British Council, Jendela KL, Valentine Willie Fine Art, Nyoba-Kan, Five Arts Centre, Instant Cafe Theatre, Matahari Books, Gerakbudaya, Dahuang Pictures, Dasein College of Art & Design, TheOtherMalaysia, Komas, Amnesty International, SUARAM, and our media sponsor TimeOut KL.
Mon - Sun: 11:00 am - 8:00 pm
The Annexe Gallery is on the 2nd floor of Central Market Annexe, which is directly behind the Central Market building. If you emerge from the back entrance of Central Market, you should see Central Market Annexe right before you. Our office is in the loft of Gallery 1, which is the gallery on the left as you face the gallery.
If you’re taking public transport, the nearest train stations to Central Market are the Pasar Seni LRT station and Masjid Jamek LRT station, both about the same distance from The Annexe Gallery. If you’re taking a cab, most taxi drivers will understand “Central Market” as the destination, but you will have to orientate yourself toward to the Annexe Gallery behind it.
