Barcelona Gallery Weekend
Barcelona Gallery Weekend (BGW) celebrates the opening of the season with a special programme in the most relevant art galleries of Barcelona, L’Hospitalet de Llobregat and the Penedès region.
The exhibitions are complemented by a parallel agenda of guided visits by gallerists, artists and curators, performances, meetings, presentations and other special activities around contemporary and avant-garde art.
The Public Programme includes guided tours to the participating galleries [ARCO Gallery Walks] and specific visits for families with children [BGW Familiar] during the weekend, as well as Walks by curators: a series of trails proposed by local independent curators to be done on one’s own.
The Professional Programme is aimed at collectors, curators, art critics and representatives of local and international art institutions. We design personalized tours, professional meetings, social events and exclusive activities to get to know Barcelona’s artistic offer and build synergies between our guests.
The Acquisitions Programme addresses foundations and private companies that commit to incorporate into their collections artworks from among those exhibited in the participating galleries during BGW.
Barcelona Gallery Weekend seeks to reinforce and make visible the rich and varied artistic scene of Barcelona, promote art collecting and highlight the work of the galleries, as culture generating spaces open to citizens, and the artists they represent.
From 14th to 17th September 2023, we celebrate the 9th edition. Save the date and discover Barcelona through art!
Barcelona Gallery Weekend is project by Art Barcelona.
