The Swab Fair is a reference for the country and I would even dare to say structural, as are the Loop Festival/Fair and the Arts Libris Fair, for example. Fairs that are relatively small, very specialized and eager to find their place in a lot of artistic events that are generated all over the planet. Because as the saying goes, our world is the world and this is our area of competence and action. The fair has had its highs and lows, like all projects; remember that it has been active since 2006 as a platform for experimenting with emerging artistic proposals. Swab can be criticized for lacking a diplomatic waist in a world that is not easy, but its founder, the Catalan architect and collector Joaquín Diez-Cascón - and his whole family, are a pillar to make this event flow how does it - they are developing a priceless task that must be thanked and admired.
With 14 editions behind it, the fair will continue in the 2022 edition, maintaining its mission of giving prominence to the spaces and disciplines that are charting the course of the art scene in the coming years. These days Barcelona and in turn Catalonia is once again capital of art from October 6 to 9, 2022. Let's take advantage of it.
