As a novelty this year, BGW will have a welcoming and meeting point for information and chill out. Open to the public at large, BGW Village is hosted inside the Fundació Antoni Tàpies, an emblematic cultural institution of the city.

Parallel program: Compositions
Curated by Glòria Picazo and Alexandra Laudo, will gather site-specific interventions by artists represented by the participating galleries in unique places of Barcelona and its surroundings. Compositions offers an alternative itinerary that encourages to explore the streets with new insight, establishing a dialogue between architecture, urban space and contemporary art.

Once again this year, the BGW benefits from the collaboration of Fundación ARCO in order to offer the ARCOGalleryWalk guided tours—a programme of free visits to the participating art galleries and venues—to the general public. The aim is to support the approach between audience and artists and establish a relationship with the galleries involved in the event.

12 routes, limited capacity, previous registration at office [​at​] 

The main newelty in the BGW2018 is the programme Artévete, a series of networking events, visits to galleries and social activities involving conversations with sector experts bringing their enriching personal experience to bear.

Artévete also aims to offer tools of understanding so the market can gain importance in the local context and be perceived as within the reach of all, showcasing its most accessible side and generating a unique creative coupling to shake up the sector and form a bridge between artists, gallery owners, institutions and potential purchasers.

With the collaboration of KOYAC.
