Swab Barcelona 2016

island6 wades its way into another spectacular Swab Barcelona. 2016 brings us the fair’s ninth edition, taking place from September 29th until October 2nd. In addition to 75 participating galleries from around the globe, as well as over 20,000 visitors, Swab also boasts a number of special events within the fair including Swab Solo, Swab Seed, Drawing applications and MYFAF. This is island6’s third time exhibiting with SWAB, the first time as a stand-alone gallery. island6’s previous dalliances with Swab Barcelona were with Pantocrator Gallery in 2013 and 2015.
