Tomorrow, September 28, begins the most important artistic event in the city, the Barcelona Gallery Weekend (BGW). Four days in which collectors, artists and art lovers will be able to visit 24 galleries, that will participate in this event. Some of them are just a few minutes away from our hotel in Paseo de Gracia; you can even get there by taking a pleasant walk. Some of these galleries, as ADN Gallery, Joan Prats Gallery, Mayoral or Marc Domenech Gallery, are right next to our Mordisco, Japonés and Tragaluz restaurants. However, there is still more…

A weekend full of art in Barcelona

This will be the third edition of the Barcelona Gallery Weekend, which every year gets only better, organized by Art Barcelona, the Association of Contemporary Art Galleries of Barcelona, with a careful artistic selection.

A committee of critics and professional curators have been in charge of choosing the spaces in displaying the work of more than 50 artists. We have to highlight this year the participation of the Estrany-de la Mota Gallery in tribute to gallery owner Antony Estrany, which adds to the 23 spaces of contemporary art and avant-garde already present in past editions.

Moreover, this edition also has a parallel programming in offering other activities to visitors, such as:

– Special artistic interventions

– The exhibition D’esquenes to the gallery, which shows the private collections of gallerists participating in the BGW

– Guided visits for visitors and professionals

Purchase programs for all audiences

There is one more novelty. In this BGW will be inaugurated the so-called Program of Acquisitions, directed especially to foundations and private companies that want to commit to acquire at least one of the pieces of art expose during the days of the BGW.

Likewise, it will also count with last year’s Friends Program for all individuals who want to be an active part of this project through their donations. A renowned artist, this time Àngels Ribé, will participate by ceding a limited edition work to collaborate with the BGW.

From our modern design hotel in Barcelona, we encourage you to spend a different weekend enjoying all the art that this event offers, where several corners of the city will become a space to admire the work of more than 50 participating artists.

Plan your route to visit the galleries and on the way make a stop to taste the exquisite gastronomy of one of the restaurants of Grupo Tragaluz near the galleries such as Luzia, Tomato Tapas, Fan Ho, Japanese, Mordisco and A Backlight, among others.

Give your welcome to the autumn in Barcelona with lots of art!
