The 11th edition of the Swab Barcelona Art Fair takes place from September 27-30. Consolidated as one of the leading independent art fairs, this year it comes with four novelties: The Desert and the Cactus, a new program curated by renowned independent curator Omar López-Chahoud who gathers together six galleries from the Brooklyn painting scene; a collaboration with Diputació de Barcelona to create Performance, a program featuring the work of six Catalan artists or artists living in Catalonia, selected by a jury made up of Alexandra Laudo, Imma Prieto and Joan Morey. This space will remain active after the fair as a performative platform for resident artists to show their work. Curated by Caterina Almirall, Ephemeral is now an established platform for artists that this year is joining Barcelona’s art factories Hangar, Fabra i Coats and La Escocesa with the aim to create a circuit of international collectors and to enlarge Barcelona’s creative fabric. In this edition, Swab goes a step further by incorporating gastronomy as an art discipline thanks to a new collaboration with elBulli Foundation. 


Swab’s 2018 edition will also see the opening of Reading, a space showing the fair’s interest for all art disciplines in the form of a publishing concept store featuring art in book format. The General Program, present in every edition, includes prestigious galleries such as Angels Barcelona, ADN, Rafael Ortiz, Rocio Santa Cruz, Ana Mas, Ronaldo Anselmi, Drawing Room, and Heinrich Ehrhardt, among others. Other programs in the fair include On Paper, which focuses on paper as a contemporary technique creating an artistic language. 


Swab also supports young artists, galleries and independent spaces through the MYFAF and Seed programs. The first grants a scholarship to three galleries with less than two years of life that have never attended an international art fair, helping them enter the international circuit. Seed is a 

program aimed at new gallery spaces and artist collectives using new platforms and formats.
