Espai Volart is a space for temporary exhibitions of artists featured in the collection of the Fundacio Vila Casas. In 2002 it was the foundation’s first gallery to open 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.

History

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

Next to Espai Volart is Espai Volart 2 and unlike Espai Volart, which concentrates exclusively on artists from the collection, Espai Volart 2 presents the work of artists well known in the Catalan art world.

Espai Volart 2 opened in 2008 and is sited in the old storerooms of the Modernista building Casa Felip, at carrer Ausiàs Marc 20, Barcelona. It was constructed in 1901 by the architect Telm Fernández. At the beginning of the 1980s it was declared a site of local cultural heritage by the Barcelona city council.
