BARCELONA GALLERY WEEKEND

Presentation

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). In 2017 Barcelona Gallery Weekend celebrates its third edition.

Organized by Art Barcelona, the programme presents the projects of the selected galleries and two parallel programmes: Compositions and D'esquena a la galeria.

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.
