What an amazing space - a cultural arena converted from a former chemical storage plant! We were so fortunate to be given a special guided tour and commentary by one of the curators, Domingo Gonzalez Galvan, who elucidated for us the idea behind the current installation, Uncertainty - the Spanish entry to the recent Venice Bienale. You really need to visit in order to appreciate both the cleverness and topicality of the concept as well as how brilliantly articulated and executed it is, particularly in tandem with the spatial dynamics, the soundtrack, lights and projections. And finally, by immersing yourself within the installation itself, you will be astounded by the mind-blowing logistics and technical finesse involved in its creation. In a few words : profound, thought-provoking, cutting-edge, hypnotic, world-class. Highly recommended.

El Tanque is a one-of-a-kind experience. There is nowhere else in the world where you can walk inside a giant oil tank. There are often art installations and for one week a year, the Keroxen rock concerts, but even without, it's worth a visit. When you walk inside, almost total darkness envelops you until your eyes adjust, and you see what an oil tank looks like from the inside.

Santa Cruz de Tenerife has shared its space (and its air) with an oil refinery for more than 70 years. As the city reclaimed part of the land of the refinery, some activists managed to save Tank #69 as a monument to the city's relationship with the oil refinery. Now famous arquitect Fernando Menis performed a prizewinning job of converting the tank to a cultural space.

What kind of visitor will love El Tanque? The same type of visitor who enjoys seeing urban artefacts and urban renewal projects. El Tanque is itself urban art at its best.
