Acquisitions
Progamme

For the fifth consecutive year, Barcelona Gallery Weekend 2021 presents an Acquisitions Programme intended for foundations and private companies that will commit to incorporate to their collections works exhibited at the participating galleries.

BGW2021 has once again featured the participation of Fundació Vila Casas, an institution dedicated to contemporary Catalan art with four exhibition spaces in Catalonia, which has remained faithful to this initiative since the first edition

For the second consecutive year, Manuel Expósito Collection - VisualSign joins the programme. An eclectic collection featuring artists from the 50's to the present day, which began in 1995 and is completed with artworks of pop art, street art, hyperrealism and conceptual pieces of a critical nature, currently focusing on young national artists.

It also incorporates Piramidón Centre d'Art Contemporani, a hybrid space between a creative factory and an exhibition space. Its commitment to BGW2021 involves a Residency Award for Sheroanawe Hakihiiwe and the incorporation of his work in the Piramidón Art Collection, built from the relationship established with the artists who inhabit the centre's studios.

The institutions have freely chosen the artworks without limitation of value and in direct relation with the galleries.
