"ARCOmadrid" celebrates its 40th anniversary. The Madrid International Contemporary Art Fair is a must-visit event for the art sector and one of the most important events for the promotion of art, both for artists and gallery owners. The event will be held from July 7 to 11 at the IFEMA fairgrounds.
On this occasion, the expected cultural event will be held exceptionally in July in order to have a greater international presence and to reactivate and boost the art market. ARCOmadrid 2021 will be attended by national and international exhibitors of contemporary art, painting, sculpture, collecting and art, with high quality artistic proposals.
A great variety of collectors and professionals of the sector and 131 important first level galleries from 27 different countries.
The "ARCO 40th Anniversary" section will be a tribute to the fair through an exhibition with works by renowned artists from different countries who have previously participated in some of the editions of the last 40 years. On the other hand, the main event will be made up of top-notch galleries.
The event will feature several areas that will amplify the spectators' artistic vision, such as the ARCOmadrid Forum, a program of debates on the future of the art market and fairs, sustainability and creation, or ArtsLibris, a platform that bets on the edition of contemporary art books.
As a novelty, it will feature a special section of Latin American art, exclusively women artists' projects and its online version ARCO E-XHIBITIONS, a space with exhibitions created by ARCOmadrid and ARCOlisboa galleries, where you can discover new projects every month.
You can enjoy "cultural spaces" and "magazines". Cultural spaces in which to discover new initiatives, with works by some of the main Spanish art centers, and "magazines", a space for reading with the main contemporary art publications.
In addition, the fair will have gastronomic and rest areas to eat and share your experience with other people, and contents created specifically by the sponsors for ARCO.
From July 8 to 11, the twelfth edition of "JUSTMAD Contemporary Art Fair", the international fair of the most emerging contemporary art, will also be held at the Palacio de Neptuno, in the heart of Madrid's Paseo del Arte.
