Apertura Madrid Gallery Weekend is the opening of the season of the contemporary art galleries in Madrid. It is organized by Arte Madrid, the association of contemporary art galleries of Madrid. Apertura aims to enhance collecting and to help build proximity between the public and the art community, as well as to create a network among cultural agents that ultimately enriches Madrid.
For its eleventh edition Apertura runs over the month of September, from the 10th to the 26th, to offer a complete program of activities accessible to the public safely and free of charge: joint openings with extended hours, a program of events and guided tours to the galleries, as well as visits to the contemporary works of art hosted in the streets, squares and buildings of Madrid and free entrance to the main museums, art centers and foundations.
Furthermore, this edition brings important digital novelties to allow the national and international public to enjoy Apertura worldwide. Therefore, we will offer virtual tours and viewing rooms of all the exhibitions and works Included in Apertura. We will also launch the Arte Madrid App, for everyone to enjoy the galleries, exhibitions and agenda, with special and personalized tours. The cherry of the cake will be the exclusive performance realized in all the Arte Madrid galleries and streamed online worldwide.
