The festival

Young Gallery Weekend is a contemporary art event in which galleries, creative spaces, emerging artists and independent cultural projects are the players.

A vanguard generator, YGW gives visibility to the contemporary cultural scene featuring the most innovative proposals. It’s the weekend that Barcelona becomes the capital of art. In its V Edition YGW will be a disruptor festival, a multidisciplinary celebration for restless minds. YGW is a direct encounter with the public and serves as a stimulus for the dissemination of culture in all its forms.

Cities such as Paris, Miami, London, Basel or New York with consolidated art fairs have decided to bet and support new independent art festivals that enrich the traditional offer generating new experiences and consolidating them as the great capitals of art. In this panorama, YGW is a key and essential piece because Barcelona is also a point of reference, a meeting point for professionals and art lovers looking for new sensations, a festival that is getting bigger and bigger. That’s why we have to celebrate it with a very special edition.
