Emerging

Swab Emerging is a subsection of the General Program, presenting galleries with less than five years of trayectory.

Emerging 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.

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.
