Madrid, July 8, 2020 -- ( ASIA TODAY ) -- Next September, la Fundación ARCO is restarting its free guided tours of contemporary art galleries in different cities. ARCO GalleryWalk visits will once again invite art aficionados and art lovers alike to take a guided tour that will bring them closer to the artist's creative process. This time around the period in which tours are being offered has been extended to allow for smaller groups and guarantee safety and management of attendance.

This new edition will start on 16 September in Madrid. After being so well received last year, visits will once again be offered for two weekends: from 16 to 19, and from 23 to 26 September. The guided tours will be open to all the public, who will have the option to sign up for tours of the neighbourhoods of Centro, Chueca, Letras, Salamanca, Salesas, and Dr. Fourquet.

Tours through Palma de Majorca will also begin on 16 September, and will last until 19 September. As in its première last year, this initiative, organised in collaboration with Art Palma Contemporani with the support of the Palma City Council, will be part of the Nit del Art programme, from 19 to 21 September.

La Fundación ARCO will once again participate in the sixth Barcelona Gallery Weekend, which is being organised by Art Barcelona on 19, 20 and 26 September. ARCO GalleryWalk will offer a variety of guided tour itineraries around the city’s galleries to share with the public at the start of the exhibition season.

The tours will also be present at the start of the art season in Valencia on 25 and 26 September. València Open - from 25 to 27 September-, organised by La Vac, will host guided tours of the most important galleries in the city.

Likewise, Seville will host different tours for the second year running, on 16 and 17 October, coinciding with Open Gallery Sevilla, organised by AGAS.

In the month of November it will be Lisbon’s turn. The Portuguese capital will become the showcase of the city’s thriving art scene, allowing its visitors to get close to the works of different artists during tours running from the 13 to the 15 November, coinciding with the Lisbon Art Weekend.

With ARCO GalleryWalk, la Fundación ARCO is doing its part to get people interested in contemporary art to stop by and discover first-hand how galleries work with artists, how an exhibition is presented in each space, and, at the same time, to get close to current creative processes.
