ARCOmadrid 2023 will be joined by top-tier galleries on an edition that confirms its international relevance
ARCOmadrid 2023, organised by IFEMA MADRID will celebrate its 42nd edition from February 22nd to 26th, reasserting its intention to continue exploring past, present and future practises. The sector’s trust and commitment to the Fair are reflected in the interest in participating in the next edition, driving the incorporation of new international galleries that confirm ARCO’s role as a pre-eminent hub for artist visibility, the active market and knowledge about art. A total of 214 galleries from 37 countries will make Madrid the international contemporary art capital, with the Mediterranean region at the heart of its analysis.
The main axis of the Fair, the General Programme, will be made up of 171 international galleries selected by the Organising Committee, with about thirty of these galleries participating for the first time, or returning after many years.
Parallel to the General Programme, ARCOmadrid will also have three curated sections: its research theme for 2023 will be Mediterranean: A Round Sea, curated by Marina Fokidis; Opening by Allianz by Julia Morandeira and Yina Jiménez Suriel, will again provide a space for the discovery of new proposals at the fair; and Never the Same. Latin American Art, curated by Mariano Mayer and Manuela Moscoso, will help strengthen research into Latin American creation and its relationship with all the players present at the fair.
The Forum will take place in addition to the contents, expanding on the analysis of art from the Mediterranean region with a structure as multi-faceted and plural as the actual art practises of the different countries, and will take us closer to the commitment and constant support of collectors from different contexts.
ARCO and the city of Madrid will provide a unique experience for all fair visitors.
