ART IN VALENCIA….’ART WALK’ TAKES PLACE ON SUNDAY 18 APRIL 2021

##ART WALK VALENCIA HAS BEEN CREATED IN 2021 TO SUPPORT INDEPENDENT ART SPACES IN THE CITY OF VALENCIA.

ELEVEN GALLERIES AND ART SPACES WILL OPEN SIMULTANEOUSLY ON SUNDAY 18 APRIL FROM 11.00h TO 14.00h FOR THE PUBLIC.

ART WALK IS FREE AND OPEN TO ALL AUDIENCES.

ART WALKERS WILL PARTICIPATE IN GROUPS OF FOUR PEOPLE OR LESS, IN ACCORDANCE WITH COVID’S CURRENT RESTRICTIONS. THERE IS NO SET ROUTE BETWEEN THE ELEVEN SPACES.

THE MAXIMUM DISTANCE BETWEEN THE GALLERIES LA TRINI IN ZAIDÍA AND LANEVERA IN RUSSAFA IS ABOUT 30 MINUTES ON FOOT.

ART WALK HAS BEEN ORGANISED BY BAY BACKNER, A BRITISH ARTIST WHO MOVED TO VALENCIA THREE YEARS AGO. THE IDEA CAME FROM A CONVERSATION WITH KRISTIN GRACIE, DIRECTOR OF THE RW PROJECT RUSSAFA, ABOUT HOW TO SAFELY OPEN THEIR CURRENT JOINT EXHIBITION TO VISITORS.

“COVID HAS CHALLENGED ARTISTS TO BE MORE CREATIVE IN SHARING OUR WORK. IT’S BEEN A YEAR NOW WITHOUT REGULAR GALLERY OPENINGS OR ARTIST TALKS IN INDEPENDENT SPACES. ART WALK MAKES IT EASY TO VISIT SOME OF THE MOST EXCITING ART SPACES IN VALENCIA. IN ENGLISH, THESE ARE CALLED ‘GRASSROOTS’ ART SPACES BECAUSE THEY SUPPORT EMERGING ARTISTS. IF WE CAN HELP THEM GROW THEIR AUDIENCE, WE ALL BENEFIT FROM A MORE THRIVING ART SCENE.”

THE MAP WITH THE PARTICIPATING GALLERIES AND ALL THE INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND AT ARTWALKVLC.COM.
