Barcelona Gallery Weekend

5th annual Barcelona Gallery Weekend

In addition to exhibitions in some thirty galleries, for the first time this year artists will also be intervening in public spaces.

One of the events that does the most to put Barcelona's art galleries in the spotlight is back: Barcelona Gallery Weekend. Now in its fifth year, the event features 27 galleries in the capital as well as L’Hospitalet de Llobregat and Santa Margarida i els Monjos, showing the work of 70 local and international artists. Over this four-day festival, Barcelona will be at the centre of the global contemporary and avant-garde art scene. This will be made even clearer through the Compositions programme, which will feature actions demonstrating the important role art plays in building cities, bringing together contemporary art, architecture and urban planning. This section is new this year, taking art to the streets to intervene in public spaces. In addition to the many gallery exhibitions, there will also be a full programme of guided tours, called the ARCO GalleryWalk; and the Artévete programme, which strives to encourage people to purchase art.

Barcelona Gallery Weekend will take place from 10 to 13 October at various times at galleries and spaces throughout the city. One of the big events of the festival is the “Escamas” exhibition at Casa Vicens. It features a selection of six pieces by different artists in the rooms of this building designed by Antoni Gaudí. It will be on through 10 November.

All of the activities are free. More information and the full programme are available on the Barcelona Gallery Weekend website.
