Barcelona Gallery Weekend 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, aimed at the general public, also 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 six Walks by six curators, a series of tours proposed by six independent curators to be done independently.
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 15th to 18th September 2022, we celebrate our 8th edition in 32 galleries, presenting the work of more than 60 artists. Come discover Barcelona through art!
Barcelona Gallery Weekend is project by Art Barcelona.
