Radio Televisión Española receives the Special “A” Award for its work in spreading culture,
Coinciding with the 35th Anniversary of ARCOmadrid, the “A” Awards for Collecting, granted by the ARCO Foundation, will celebrate their 20th edition. On this exceptional occasion, the Foundation has granted six awards to distinguish the work done by collectors, institutions and the artistic value of their collections, as well as their support in diffusing contemporary art.
Hence, the ARCO Foundation has rewarded the H. E. Sheikh Hassan Bin Mohammed Bin Ali Al Thani Collection (Qatar Museums), the Jorge M. Pérez Collection (PAMM Museum Miami) and the Patrizia Sandretto Collection (Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo) in the International Collecting category; the António Cachola Collection, in the Private Collecting category, and the Inelcom Collection and the Banco Sabadell Collection in the Corporate Collecting category. Furthermore, Radio Televisión Española (RTVE) has received the special “A” award for its work in cultural diffusion.
The ARCO Foundation thus acknowledges the work of both the national and the international collectors, the promotion of which has been one of the main objectives since their creation in 1987.
