    About

    Espai Volart is a space for temporary exhibitions of artists featured in the collection. In 2002 it was the foundation’s first gallery open to its doors to the public in Barcelona. It is located in the old storerooms of the Modernista building Casa Antonia Puget, on carrer Ausiàs Marc 22, and was declared a site of local cultural heritage by the Barcelona city council.

    It was built in 1904 by the architects Roc Cot i Cot and Ramon Viñolas. At the end of the 19th century the site of the present Espai Volart was the business premises of Volart de puntes i teixits and was used to store cloth and lacework, typical products of the Catalan textile industry of the time.

    Every July the Patrim exhibitions, shows of work by students finishing Fine Arts at Barcelona University, are also held at Espai Volart, as well as an exhibition of a selection of works from the Ynglada-Guillot drawing prize and the award ceremony.
