PALMA DE MALLORCA

Seville will likewise be one of this year’s new developments. Guided tours will be organised there on 27 and 28 September, also coinciding with Open Gallery, the opening of the city’s galleries.
Fundación ARCO will once again participate in the fifth Barcelona Gallery Weekend, which is being organised by Art Barcelona on 11 and 12 October.

With ARCO GalleryWalk, Fundación ARCO is doing its part to get people interested in contemporary art to stop by and discover first-hand how galleries work with artists, how an exhibition is presented in each space, and, at the same time, to get closer to contemporary creation.
