ARCOmadrid will celebrate its 35th Anniversary from 24 to 28 February, with the exceptional participation of 35 galleries present at one time or another in the 35 years of the Fair’s history. These galleries have been invited to participate in he section Imagining other futures, complementing the 169 galleries included in the General Programme.
There will be a further 19 galleries in the Opening Section and 18 in Solo Projects.
A total of 224 galleries from 29 different countries that will represent the art scene of the last almost four decades linking the Fair’s past with emerging artists. A programme that will be marked by the quality and selection of the contents, as well as the involvement of different gallery owners who have contributed to ARCOmadrid’s evolution over these years.
This outstanding representation of galleries and artists will revisit the best contents of the last 35 editions, while also including key artists of the future.
For the first time in over 20 years, ARCO will not have a Guest Country, placing its emphasis instead on the exceptional nature of this year’s project and underlining ARCOmadrid’s relevance on the international art scene.
