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.
During 2020 edition, the Acquisitions Programme featured once again 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, and Utopicus ART collection, which relies on the program for the second year. In addition, the following companies have joined the programme for the first time: DKV Seguros through the DKV Arteria Programme, and the Manuel Expósito Collection - VisualSign, 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.
The institutions freely choose the artworks without limitation of value and in direct relation with the galleries.
