Allan Sekula was an American photographer, writer, critic and filmmaker. Born in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1951, he lived most of his life in Los Angeles and the surrounding regions of southern California.
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.
ARCO Madrid also supports the presentation of projects by individual artists or artists in dialogue. For 2018, of the galleries selected by the Organizing Committee in the General Program, 19 will dedicate their stand to one or two artists, which include Can Altay, Teresa Burga, Robert Filliou, Helena Almeida, Caetano de Almeida, and Jeronimo Elespe.
