APERTURA / Programme


The Madrid Gallery Weekend is in motion. Thursday September 11th, begins Apertura 2014, the annual meeting that marks the beginning of the Art season in the city. That evening, 44 galleries open their exhibitions jointly. That's the starting signal for 3 days to open their spaces with special schedules.

On Saturday 13, the traditional "Brunch at Galleries" will take place. It is an invitation to approach art in a different way.

In parallel, from Thursday until Saturday, with the collaboration of ARCO, Apertura will offer the ARCO GALLERYWalk: tours guided by experts around different galleries of the city.

Top institutions of the capital wanted to join Apertura 2014. It will happen through the "Other Activities" organized on Friday and Saturday. Museo Thyssen, Museo Reina Sofía, Fundación Lázaro Galdiano, Conde Duque, Sala Canal de Isabel II, Fundación Mapfre, Fundación Telefónica, CentroCentro, Museo ABC, Centro de Arte 2 de Mayo… will open their doors offering tours to their exhibitions guided by directors or curators.
