Barcelona is world-famous for its artistic heritage: Gaudí, Picasso, Miró, to name a few. But what about the artists of today? Those who nobody knows of just yet, but may be the future masters of tomorrow? Here, Culture Trip select eight of the best galleries in Barcelona to discover up-and-coming artists.

Blue Project Foundation

The Blue Project Foundation is a multidisciplinary art venue where all who enter its doors are invited to reflect upon contemporary art in an open and respectful manner. It’s also a place of creation thanks to the residency program that enables young artists to develop and grow with the support of the foundation. And did we mention that it’s home to one of the most popular vegan cafés in town?

The best word to describe this art center is probably ‘hybridity’. In Fabra i Coats, you will discover the endless world of possibilities that stem from the blending of visual arts, performing arts and multimedia creations. This inter-disciplinary space is not just an art gallery; it’s a self-described ‘Art Factory’ too – a place dedicated to artistic creation, a place of meeting and exchange, and a fertile ground for innovators of all kinds.

Project SD

Art Gallery
A wonderfully understated art gallery, Project SD is best known for its innovative program, whereby it seeks to establish relationships between young, up-and-coming artists and artists who are already more established. The idea is that by establishing a dialogue between emergent and renowned artists, they hope to foster discussion and the creation of innovative new art forms. Project SD also aims to work with artists’ books and is home to a growing collection of these editions, especially those of artists with whom they have collaborated.
