ARCO this week in MADRID!!!

Dearest Friends,

This week the art world will gather in Madrid for another year of ARCO.

The show will take place between 15 and 19 February, will bring together the works of 150 galleries from over 30 countries in the General Programme, to which can be added those of the participants in the Curated Programmes, from over 30 countries.

In addition to the changes introduced for the last edition by its fantastic director Carlos Urroz, ARCO has adopted some new initiatives that will reinforce its character as a platform for discovering and investigation about artists. The two new projects are: Highlighted Artist which aims to highlight one artist per booth and for which a new catalogue will be published, and SOLO OBJECTS, a section located at various areas of the fair with works selected by the curators collaborating with ARCOmadrid.

The presence of The Netherlands as the Guest of Honour at ARCO, in FOCUS: THE NETHERLANDS, will be another big attraction. In collaboration with the Mondrian Foundation and the Dutch Embassy in Spain, ARCO is going to present 14 Dutch galleries selected by the curator Xander Karskens, who is responsible for the international contemporary art collection and programme at Museum De Hallen Haarlem. The Dutch presence in Madrid will be reinforced by exhibitions in several museums and institutions.

So all seems very exited no? And as always is Valentine’s week, so HAPPY VALENTINE to everyone!!!!
