Mitte Gallery, one of the most active cultural spaces in town, is celebrating no less than three years in the map of Barcelona. It feels like yesterday when this gallery opened its doors for the first time. Since then, three spaces have hosted a range of exhibitions and showcased talent from around the world. To celebrate its third anniversary, Mitte has organised a special exhibition, the “B-M-B” (“Mitte-Barcelona-Barcelona”), that pays homage to Barcelona. What is on show is the works of different artists that one day fell in love with the city and who work and live in it.
– The Artspace hosts a group show of young artists and new design promises
– In the “Salon”, the photo exhibit called “Under the Skin” of photographer Celia Suarez
– “Pop Up Window” presents a window view to the Eixample quarter.
