Barcelona Gallery Weekend 2023
September 14–17, 2023
Art Barcelona
Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona Gallery Weekend celebrates the opening of the season with a special program 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 modern art.

Barcelona Gallery Weekend, a project by Art Barcelona, 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 our 9th edition. Save the date and discover Barcelona through art!

The Public Program includes guided tours to the participating galleries (ARCO GalleryWalks) and specific visits for families with children (BGW Familiar) during the weekend, and suggested tours to visit the galleries autonomously, using text-guides by local curators. BGW2023 will feature the Walks by curators Sara Catalán, Pilar Cruz, Mariella Franzoni, Sabel Gavaldon, Gabriel Virgilio Luciani, Zaida Trallero and Veronica Valentini.

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.

  • Michael Radford: CRASH
    Publication
    Edition Taube
    International

    In Michael Radford’s first artists’ book, we see shattered supercar bodies – forming a dialogue between consumer accidents and human desire, questioning these objects and their role in enabling petrol masculinity. The seductive high-gloss compositions draw us in, seen through the lens of automotive sexiness and the capitalist ideological machine, cannoned by the image. (more…)

  • How Not to Be Seen

    Remai Modern
    Saskatoon, Canada

    We may not always be aware of it, but we live in an era of continuous scrutiny. Modern technology captures, distributes, and analyzes images and data at ever-increasing rates. We are all subjects of tracking, not only by cameras employed purportedly as a deterrent for crime but also by digital tools used by corporations and governments alike to monitor and evaluate our actions, needs, and desires.
