Swab Barcelona is proud to present the third edition of MYFAF (My First Art Fair), an open call where Swab gives an opportunity to those young galleries that exists for least than two years or choose SWAB as their first art fair.

Opening a gallery these days is a brave and tough decision in such a competitive and constantly changing art world scenario. But supporting a group of artists, especially in the beginning of their career, is crucial to give them international visibility and in the best of cases, the possibility of certain financial outcome. When public institutions and biennials fail to give the artists the best means to exhibit, most of the times are the galleries who really take this role of producers and supporters.

At the same time, art fairs are consolidated as a spot not only for commercial activity but a hub where curators, institution directors, collectors, critics and artists meet. The galleries selected for MYFAF will be given an introduction to the art fair scenario, and will have the opportunity to be put in touch with professionals from around the world.

The four galleries selected to participated, chosen by curator Rosa Lleó are:

Hans & Fritz Contemporary. Barcelona

Lamart OffSpace. Atwerp

L&B  Contemporary Art Gallery. Barcelona

Rodriguez Gallery. Poznan

The selection criteria has been made according to the gallery proposal, specially looking at recent and ambitious projects that support emerging artists or aim to follow a specific and rigorous curatorial approach.
