Abierto València 2021


In this ninth edition of the festival of the Contemporary Art galleries of the Valencian Community, the novelties will be reinforced with a greater participation of both galleries and institutions. 

This year LAVAC, the Association of Contemporary Art Galleries of the Valencian Community, organiser of the event, is once again bringing its galleries closer to the public, inviting them to visit and get to know the season’s projects, the novelties and its programme. 

As in previous editions, the Gallery Walk routes, organised by ARCO, and the talks at IVAM will stand out. Acquisitions will also be awarded as part of the celebration and various activities will be held, such as the opening of the galleries during special opening hours; all these events give Abierto València its meaning. 

The Abierto València Alhambra Beer Award will be the last to be announced on the first day of October. 

Abierto València continues with the image design created in 2020 by Antonio Ballesteros. 

The galleries participating in this year’s Abierto València by LAVAC are: Luis Adelantado, Benlliure, Alba Cabrera, Galería Cuatro, Espai Tactel, La Mercería, Tuesday to Friday, Punto, Rosa Santos, Set Espai d’Art, Shiras Galería, Galería Thema, and Vangar. The gallery Espai Nivi Collblanc from Castellón and the galleries Aural and Isabel Bilbao from Alicante are also participating in this edition, as are two new Valencian galleries that are joining the 2021 edition: The Liminal and Gabinete de Dibujos.
