On October 14, 15 and 16, the Poblenou Urban District, the cultural association that has been in charge of promoting art and creativity in the cultural and creative district of Barcelona for more than ten years, is celebrating the third edition of the AR-DE, a free tour of galleries, showrooms and museums in Poblenou where art and design will become the main protagonists. A good opportunity to meet emerging and established artists and national and international designers.
From its first edition in 2021, AR-DE seeks to reinforce and make visible the varied artistic fabric of the Creative District, as well as to promote the sale and collecting of art, highlighting the work of galleries, entities and spaces that are part of the Urban District of Poblenou community.
After the dates in mid-September with the Barcelona Gallery Weekend and at the beginning of October with the SWAB Barcelona Art Fair, the artistic activity does not stop in the Catalan capital, and the AR-DE becomes a meeting especially remarkable for the most demanding collectors. AR-DE is an independent project that seeks to bring the work of emerging and established artists closer to the viewer through innovative proposals and inviting the public from all over the city to Poblenou, Barcelona's cultural and creative district.
