Artists, collectors, exhibition curators, journalists and cultural consultants, among others, are participating in the program.
How does an art gallery work? How can I start buying artwork? What must be taken into account when purchasing art pieces? These are some of the questions that 'Dies d'Artévete', a series of conversations associated with the Barcelona Gallery Weekend, will turn around. Art Barcelona, the organizing association, is closing a gap between the general public and art purchasing, bringing the two together "in an easy and transparent way." Art collectors, exhibition curators, critics, cultural consultants, journalists, historians and artists will all take part in the event. Some thirty galleries are participating, and the exhibitions offered during 'Dies d'Artévete' are also included in the program.
Collector Erling Kagge said: "Art is a luxury, but it doesn't have to be expensive.” That’s the mindset with which Art Barcelona invites anyone curious about the world of art, gallery and collecting to attend the event. The intention is also to break through the prejudice that the purchase of artwork is within reach of very few people and to simply "learn something new" with the activities of 'Dies d'Artévete'.
Taking place from May 7th to 9th, the event will kick off with a round table discussing the artistic offer in Barcelona. The historian, critic and curator Montse Badia; the journalist and critic Juan Bufill, and the journalist Clàudia Rius will be speaking.
All activities are free, but registration is required in advance. Details of the 'Dies d'Artévete' event can be found via this link.
