Espai Volart is a space for temporary exhibitions by artists featured in the Fundació Vila Casas' permanent collection. Inaugurated in 2002, it was the foundation's first gallery to open 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.
The building dates from 1904 and was designed by the architects Roc Cot i Cot and Ramon Viñolas. At the end of the 19th century the site 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 Espai Volart hosts the Patrim exhibitions, which show work by final year students studying Fine Arts at Barcelona University.They also showcase a selection of works from the annual Ynglada-Guillot drawing prize and host the award ceremony.
Furthermore the Fundació Vila Casas is planning a virtual museum with the aim of contributing to the understanding of contemporary art. You can admire the art exhibitions here
