Swab Emerging is a subsection of the General Program, presenting galleries with less than five years of trayectory.
Focus LATAM joins Swab Emerging as a curated section by Santiago Gasquet, co-director of PIEDRAS (Buenos Aires), who will present the most promising emerging proposals of the Latin American contemporary art scene.
For this first edition of Focus, Gasquet proposes a selection of six hybrid and self-managed spaces that, with less than five years of trajectory, already make up a network of new dynamics of art circulation in the Latin American context.
The galleries participating in this program explore alternative formats of production and management and, within the framework of the fair, present artistic proposals that seek to generate a field for the construction of knowledge, discourses and identity given by the characteristics of the context each one of them inhabits.

Focus Eastern Europe
As every year, Swab presents a special geographically localized program, and this 2021 puts the spotlight on Eastern Europe. A selection of emerging galleries from this context will present the freshest proposals defining the art scene of their context.
Swab Seed showcases twelve independent and artist-run spaces that share experimentation as a common denominator. Swab Seed seeks to give visibility to new platforms and proposals that are shaking up the contemporary scene. For this edition, Swab Seed joins forces with Fundació Vila Casas, which sponsors the participation of four independent Catalan spaces.

Swab on Paper
This year again, Swab presents the program Swab On Paper, curated by Carolina Diez-Cascón, which explores the conceptuality and technique of this medium.
This edition focuses on photocollage, observing the deformations of photographic reality and the classic paper-collage through the manipulation of the medium itself in response to a society that reflects on its own reality and identity.

Swab Barcelona presents Swab Reading, a program that aims to merge design and reading, art and publishing. This edition of Swab continues to open up a space for publishing disciplines and invites two European projects to exhibit their books
My First Art Fair
Selection of four young contemporary art galleries, under two years old, that still have not participated in any international fair. Swab offers this space free of charge to help promote new emerging galleries.
Curated by Caterina Almirall and Margot Cuevas, this program presents installation proposals by artists in residence at the Fàbriques de Creació in Barcelona: Fabra i Coats, Hangar and La Escocesa. The works exhibited in this section play with space and interaction with the visitor.
Locations and timetable will be soon announced.
