Behind the Artist

Behind the Artist



Fundación Swab Barcelona presents Behind the artist, a project that is conceived within the Swab City program with the purpose of merging the city’s artistic activity with that of the fair, creating circuits and cultural exchanges between the participating galleries and artists and the Barcelona locals outside the fair circuit. 

This activity will feature studios of artists based in Barcelona, which will open their doors for Swab Barcelona’s collectors’ program. Six artists selected by the curator Omar López-Chahoud, who will propose the vision of the art piece from its inception or creative core, placing us behind the artist and opening a window into the inspiration of its reflection or shadow.


Participating artists:

Pep Vidal, ADN Gallery

Blanca Casa Brullet, Rocio Santa Cruz Gallery 

Mar Arza, Rocio Santa Cruz Gallery 

Mariona Moncunill, Palmadotze Gallery 

Antonia del Río, Sicart Gallery

Bernat Davi, Bombon Projects
