For the fourth consecutive year, Barcelona
Gallery Weekend 2020 presents an Acquisitions Programme intended for foundations
and private companies that will commit to incorporate to their collections
works exhibited at the participating galleries.
During the 2019 edition, the Acquisitions Programme had the pleasure of welcoming five entities:
Fundació Vila Casas, an institution devoted to contemporary Catalan art and comprised of four impressive exhibition spaces across Catalonia, has remained faithful to this initiative since the first edition. The art space and artists residency La Place has relied one more year on this initiative, and the Cuban art Collection La Kole, Utopicus ART collection and Sir Victor have joined in for the first time.
We are grateful for the participation of these five entities, and in particular for the special involvement of Sir Victor in the event, at different levels. The three acquired works "will make a great addition to Sir Victor’s art collection, which aims to give a broad overview of contemporary Catalan art and support the local Catalan art scene. Fo’s 3 works are inspired and respond to Albert Ràfols Casamada artwork , which has great presence in Sir Victor’s art collection. By adding Fo’s 3 works to the collection we continue the dialogue between the two artists and the different generations".
The institutions have freely chosen the works without limitation of value and in direct relation with the galleries.
