Swab Friends

Become a friend of Swab Barcelona!

Swab Barcelona inaugurates the Swab Friends and Besties program, for those who like us believe in the importance of supporting contemporary art and its new exponents.

Since its beginning, the fair has been committed to emerging talent, creating opportunities for galleries, artists and young curators to access and grow within the art market. Now you too can support our mission to promote new talent and bring the contemporary art world to the general public.

If you are a young contemporary art lover, between 25 and 40 years old, and eager to explore new voices in contemporary art, while supporting young people like you, this is your moment!

By becoming a Swab Bestie, you will support the participation of emerging artists and gallerists who are starting their fair career at Swab Barcelona, the scholarship exhibitors of the My First Art Fair program.

At Swab Barcelona we believe that there is no better formula than “young supporting young” to generate a dialogue that works as a starting point to grow together.

For this reason, Swab is giving all Swab Bestie club members the opportunity to attend a personal meeting with the gallerists and artists who have supported MYFAF with their donation.

Membership includes:

• YoungSupportsYoung: Meet & greet program MYFAF
Invitation to the official opening + day pass**
• Swab welcome tote bag

**Day pass: You can choose a day between Thursday and Sunday.

*Once the payment has been made, Swab Barcelona will issue the corresponding donation certificate, in order to enjoy the applicable tax benefits.
