ARCO Madrid

ARCO Foundation supports the launch of the gallery season in Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia

Once again this September and October, the ARCO Foundation will help kick off the art season in Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona through its initiative ARCOgallery Walk, offering guided visits through the art galleries of these cities.

15 Sep 2016

In Apertura Madrid, to be held from 15 to 17 September, the Foundation will propose various itineraries through Madrid’s contemporary art galleries. Similarly, in Abierto Valencia, it will offer two days of guided visits to the galleries on 30 September and 1 October. And in Barcelona, within the framework of the Barcelona Gallery Weekend, the visits will take place on 1 and 2 October.

Organised by Arte Madrid, LaVAC and Art Barcelona, the events will be held to celebrate the joint inauguration of the art season by the member galleries of these associations.

Through the ARCOgallery Walk, the ARCO Foundation helps bring the interested public closer to galleries, allowing it to learn first-hand how galleries work with artists and how an exhibition is presented in each space while at the same time taking them closer to contemporary creation.
