Argentina Plataforma / ARCO
ARCOmadrid consolidates its Latin American focus with the presence of Argentina as its guest country.
With fewer sections, the 2017 edition will hinge on a backbone of quality and consolidation of the fair as a hub for the discovery of new talents and contents, with almost one third of the Fair focusing on the presentation of one or two artists.
The Fair, organised by IFEMA, will be held in Madrid from 22 to 26 February.The 36th edition of ARCOmadrid, International Contemporary Art Fair organised by IFEMA, to be held from 22 to 26 February in Madrid,
The main novelty of this new edition will be the special participation of Argentina as the Guest Country and its projection throughout Madrid in the form of numerous initiatives in the city’s main museums and art centres. The Argentine Minister for Culture, Pablo Avelluto, was responsible for the presentation along with the Managing Director of IFEMA, Eduardo López-Puertas; the director of ARCOmadrid, Carlos Urroz; the managers of Argentina at the fair, Inés Katzenstein and Sonia Becce, as well as representatives of ArteBA, and the Spanish Embassy in Argentina. During the act, the general guidelines for the next edition of ARCOmadrid were described in detail, along with the main contents and presences from Argentina at ARCOmadrid.
ARCOmadrid 2017 will bring together a total of 199 galleries, of which 160 form part of the General Programme, as well as the curated sections: Argentina at ARCO´, with a selection of 12 galleries; ´Dialogues´, with 10 and ´Opening´, with 17. The programme will hinge on a backbone of quality and consolidation of the fair as a hub for the discovery of new talents and contents for collectors and professionals. Thus, of all the galleries selected by the Organising Committee and the curators of the various programmes, almost one third of the Fair will take part with projects focusing on the presentation of one or two artists from different contexts, reinforcing ARCOmadrid as a space for getting to know the work of artists from different generations.
In addition to these exhibitions, the city will also play host to the programme being put together by Argentina at ARCO, created by the independent curator Sonia Becce, along with other actions to be held within the framework of the Fair’s Forum and the Professional Encounters, with the participation of major collectors from the American continent.
