Hurrah to local gallery owner and entrepreneur Emilio Álvarez for keeping the Barcelona contemporary art world alive – and its various factions talking to one another. This smart space shows photography and video pieces, and hosts the occasional performance. Nearby Room Service (C/Àngels; 16, 93 302 1016), is dedicated to furniture design, while Álvarez's restaurant Carmelitas shows lo-fi video art at mealtimes (C/Doctor Dou 1, 93 412 4684, www.carmelitasgallery.com).
