ESCALERA DE INCENDIOS IS
FIRE ESCAPE IS
Escalera de Incendios [Fire Escape] is an Art Concept which works with independent and emerging Contemporary Art Projects. Directed by Anna García Solana, artist and independent art curator. It works from the cloud representing different artists in different disciplines.
It was born in 2012 in Barcelona with the main goal of democratising the art, breaking walls between artist and audience. Facilitating access to art and culture for all audiences through exhibitions, actions, talks, workshops, markets, fairs and art festivals. Since the beginning, it has been defined as a cultural lab where critique and thought are present, an open place for reflection, production and development of thought.
In its online art gallery, we can enjoy the work of its current artists. Nowadays it works on new international projects with artists based in Melbourne, Australia.
One of the most important projects is Young Gallery Weekend. YGW is a contemporary art event in which galleries, creative spaces, emerging artists and independent cultural projects are the players.
A vanguard generator, YGW gives visibility to the contemporary cultural scene featuring the most innovative proposals. It’s the weekend that Barcelona becomes the capital of art. A disruptor festival, a multidisciplinary celebration for restless minds. YGW is a direct encounter with the public and serves as a stimulus for the dissemination of culture in all its forms.
Cities such as Paris, Miami, London, Basel or New York with consolidated art fairs have decided to bet and support new independent art festivals that enrich the traditional offer generating new experiences and consolidating them as the great capitals of art. In this panorama, YGW is a key and essential piece because Barcelona is also a point of reference, a meeting point for professionals and art lovers looking for new sensations, a festival that is getting bigger and bigger.
