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.

Focus South and East Mediterranean
Swab presents a special program that puts the spotlight on a geographic region that is underrepresented in our context. This edition, the fair focuses on the South and East of the Mediterranean, looking for emerging proposals from galleries that, even though they come from different origins, share a series of dynamics, imaginaries and practices that have to do with the nexus that they all share, the proximity to the Mediterranean Sea.
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
Swab presents the On Paper program, curated by Carolina Diez-Cascón. This edition, titled “Cuerpo sin nombre” (Body without a name), presents four proposals that reflect on the figure of the body, its connotations, and its possible emancipation from history, gender, or origin.
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 three 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.
