The Carmen Thyssen Space is a centre for temporary exhibitions which opens its doors in the summer of 2012 with Light landscapes, dreamy landscapes. From Gauguin to Delvaux. The exhibitions of 2013 (Sisley-Kandinsky-Hopper), 2014 (The ideal in the landscape . Among Meifrén, Matisse and Goncharova), 2015 (Barcelona - Paris - New York. From Urgell to O'Keeffe), 2016 (The Illusion of the Far West) and in 2017 (An ideal world. From Van Gogh to Gauguin and Vasarely) had again a good acceptance from both public and critics.  

The Carmen Thyssen Space has become an artistic point of reference in the Costa Brava, placing Sant Feliu in the apex of a cultural triangle, together with Girona and Figueres. Until 2018, it offers temporary exhibitions of the Carmen Thyssen Collection from June to October. However, the new Carmen Thyssen Sant Feliu de Guíxols Museum is expected to open its doors the second half of 2020, which will have a permanent collection of the Catalan paintings that belong to Carmen Thyssen Bornemisza.

The new museum will continue to have not only temporary exhibitions, but also other activities related to young people, local artists, proposals by artists living in Sant Feliu... The local Monastery, which belongs to the Benedictine order and has Romanesque roots, will host the new museum. A new building will be erected in the current Abadia square.
