Carla Chaim

ARCO Madrid is the international meeting point for exchange between Europe and Latin America. The introduction of a concept, ‘The Future’, as a point of departure for exploration, along with the quality of the contents and the consolidation of the fair as a hub for the discovery of new talents, will constitute the essence of ARCO Madrid 2018 which, organized by IFEMA, will hold its 37th edition from February 21st to 25th.

ARCO Madrid 2018 will bring together a total of 211 galleries from 29 countries, 160 of which make up the general program, in addition to the curated sections: “what is going to happen is not the future, but what we are going to do”, with a selection of 20 galleries; Dialogues, with 14 and Opening, with 19.

PROMOTING COLLECTING

ARCO Madrid will again set its buyers’ programme in motion, drawing over 250 collectors from over 40 countries to Madrid. In addition, it will also offer the Young Collectors initiative again this year, inviting around thirty young international collectors, who will equally contribute to renewing and driving collecting in the main Spanish art market platform.

Along the same lines, Fundación ARCO will also incorporate a new International Council, to represent the international collectors and acknowledge the work of private patrons in the creation, diffusion and preservation of the art of our times.

PROFESSIONALS

ARCO Madrid enjoys the distinction of having been the first fair in the world to incorporate the voices of contemporary art professionals, thus consolidating it as a point of meeting, exchange and essential knowledge for critics, institution directors and other professionals. Attendance by collectors and other players linked to art makes it possible to offer an intense programme of debates that, in turn, constitute a platform for reflection.

PUBLIC

The Fair will dedicate three days, 23, 24 and 25 February, to art enthusiasts and the general public, offering them certain services and facilities to ensure they get the most out of their visit.
