A week after the tragic attacks in Barcelona, followed by labor protests which forced the temporary closure of eight of the major art institutions during the height of the tourist season, the city gathers its resilience to slowly resume its life.

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). This year’s edition celebrates its third edition.

Organized by Art Barcelona, the program presents the projects of the selected galleries and two parallel programmes: Compositions and D’esquenes a la galeria.

Compositions presents artistic interventions in unique sites across the city, either because of its architecture, its activity or its history. Each of the commissioned artists is represented by a gallery participating in the BGW. Compositions was initiated by the curatorial team Latitudes and for this third edition the curators are Alexandra Laudo and Glòria Picazo.

D’esquenes a la galeria is an exhibition of artworks from the BGW participating gallerists’ private collections related to a subject and to a venue which both change in every edition. Curated by Joana Hurtado Matheu.

Barcelona Gallery Weekend aims to reinforce art collecting in the city and to value the presence of the galleries as culture generating spaces open to the public.

Among the approximately two dozen galleries represented are ADN Galeria, Dada Objet Trouvé, Galeria Carles Taché, Galeria Contrast, and ProjecteSD. Artists will include Diane Guyot de Saint Michel, Esteban Vicente, Rafel Bestard, Ángel Mateo Charris and Gonzalo Sicre on collaborative pieces, and some twenty others.
