  • Getting here

    The Annexe is situated in the building directly behind the Central Market building. Take note that the two buildings are not structurally connected. If you’re reaching us by walking through the main Central Market building, you have to come out of the back entrance to find the Annexe. Look out for Gajah-gajah Gallery that’s located on the ground floor. The Annexe Gallery (and office) is on the top floor of the Annexe, which is the 2nd floor. The Studio and Theatre are situated on the 1st floor. The mezzanine and ground floors are occupied by leased tenants.

    If you’re taking public transport, the nearest train station to Central Market is the RapidKL Pasar Seni LRT station. 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.

About The Annexe, Central Market

The Art & Soul of Kuala Lumpur

The Annexe, located behind the recently rebranded Central Market, was launched in January 2007 as a centre for contemporary arts. Making the perfect complement to the more traditional Central Market, The Annexe provides spaces for present generations to express themselves – whether they be artists or audiences, locals or tourists, young or young-at-heart.

Over the past year, we have hosted a mind-boggling variety of events, ranging from exhibitions, talks, film screenings, workshops, theatre, music, performance art, tango classes, etc. We hope to bring together folks from all walks of life in the shared adventure of art in order to make the arts a vital part of Malaysia’s public and private life.

And we’re still looking for more. We welcome experiments.

What We Have

The Annexe Gallery (3rd Fl): On the top floor, three interconnected spaces for anything you can create and/or deconstruct: contemporary art, socio-political art, collaborative art, community art, multimedia multidisciplinary multisyllabic art. It is also perfect for theatre, dance, film screenings, music gigs, poetry recitals, workshops, fashion shows, book launches and corporate functions.

The Annexe Studios (2nd Fl): Lower-ceiling rooms below the galleries. They can be partitioned smaller depending on whether you want the space to feel chilled and cosy or artistically dingy. They can be used for rehearsals, workshops, talks, meetings, as well as smaller exhibitions and performances in search of that precious dinginess.
