On the other hand, as a joint initiative with ARCO Foundation, there will be routes through the different spaces with ARCO Gallery Walk which consists of free guided-tours to anyone in the city that wishes to join. Read more.
Finally, some non-profit spaces and organizations will join the programme to provide another perspective of the art from their realms of work and investigation by presenting artists who are not necessarily regulars to the local scene. The main cultural institutions of the city will also join with their exhibitions. Read more.
The Barcelona Gallery Weekend is an initiative of Art Barcelona, with the participation of the Barcelona City Hall, the Generalitat de Catalunya Government, the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, the L'Hospitalet City Hall and other supporting hotels, firms and patrons which have joined the event. Thanks to them all we hope the Barcelona Gallery Weekend is going to become the yearly artistic appointment of the city.
