What is it all about?

Swinton Gallery, is conceived as a meeting point for artists working on different disciplines who develope the most radical and new codes. More than 200sqm. in a singular space divided into two rooms which are suitable for different uses and artistic projects: from street art to illustration, photography in both national and international makets. We are interested in artists who speak about human nature and those who dare to face it.

A special place, plenty of columns wich allows us to divide the room and complete the program of the gallery with other events as presentations and book launches, talks and projections.

Besides that, Swinton Gallery, offers the artists a residency, a space to live and work inside the gallery. This way, each artist will be able to adapt their projects to the gallery room and work in the space with the strength of the lived experience. The aim is to allow the artists to create an exhibition that envolves spectators and collectors in their artistic universe and work in a spectacular way.
