General information

From September 2nd to 26th, 2021

Free entrance

GETXOPHOTO, International Image Festival, takes place in Getxo, the Basque Country, close to Bilbao. This festival is committed to the use of formats, supports and unconventional spaces to circulate the work of international visual artists.

GETXOPHOTO is conceived to walk around the city and delve into the exhibitions in a few hours. Most of them are set outdoors, which allows the audience to decide the moment and rhythm of the visit. We also recommend some routes, depending on the time available or the needs of the visitors: together with children, full day or just a few hours, among others.

All the exhibitions are free and, besides, the Festival offers a wide program of activities, addressed to professionals and amateurs willing to learn or live through an experience around the image.
