Barcelona Gallery Weekend is an annual 4-day event about contemporary and avant-garde art which takes place in Barcelona and its outskirts (L’Hospitalet de Llobregat) with the aim of becoming one of the international art musts. In 2017 Barcelona Gallery Weekend celebrates its third edition.
Organized by Art Barcelona, the programme presents the projects of the selected galleries, to which are added exhibitions at foundations and artistic interventions, as well as the regular programme of museums, art centres and project spaces. Altogether the event intends to show the entire creative context of the city.
El Barcelona Gallery Weekend aims to reinforce art collecting in the city and to value the labour of the galleries as culture generating spaces open to the public.
