ARCOmadrid 2021 celebrates its return with a view to reactivating the art market
This year's edition of the Fair will see the participation of 131 galleries from 27 countries.

MADRID.- ARCOmadrid 2021, organised by IFEMA MADRID, will celebrate its 40th edition from July 7th to 11th with the objective of marking a turning-point to relaunch and reactivate the contemporary art market. The support received from institutions, museums and art centres, galleries, collectors and other professionals has been essential to set in motion this cultural encounter.

Rising to the current challenges of providing a scenario that allows for reactivation and a long-awaited professional reunion, ARCOmadrid will strive to further its spirit of service to galleries, redoubling its conscientious efforts to drive the art market, promote artists and foster collecting.

The overriding trust of the sector; the return to international fair activity already initiated and tested, and the positive evolution of the vaccination rates with the resulting effect of bringing the pandemic into remission, forecast a positive scenario for the event. Furthermore, the strict protocol drawn up by IFEMA MADRID includes all the measures necessary to order the flow of attendants and their mobility; establish capacity controls, ensure safety distancing, the elimination of direct contact via digital registration and the incorporation of the latest sanitary and attendant-counting technologies, and most importantly, the air renewal systems in the pavilions.

On this occasion, ARCOmadrid will enjoy the participation of 131 galleries, and an international presence of over 54%, with artistic proposals set to ensure a high-quality fair for art collectors and professionals to celebrate this cultural reunion.

Artistic programmes

With the support of the Spanish galleries, the General Programme will once again form the backbone of ARCOmadrid. This programme will also boast the participation of a significant representation of high-quality European galleries including Thaddaeus Ropac -Paris-; Chantal Crousel -Paris-; Mor Charpentier -Paris-; Lelong -Paris-; Jérôme Poggi -Paris-; Perrotin -Paris-; Peter Kilchman -Zurich-; Carlier Gebauer -Berlin-; Peres Projects -Berlin-; Nordenhake -Berlin; Krinzinger -Vienna-; Georg Kargl Fine Arts -Vienna-; Nächst St. Stephan Rosemarie Schwarzwälder -Vienna-; Wilde -Geneva- and Nadja Vilenne –Liège-.

These will be joined by other galleries coming from regions such as Dvir Gallery -Tel Aviv- or Movart -Luanda-, and Latin American galleries such as Baró Galería -São Paulo-; El Apartamento -Havana-; Proyectos Ultravioleta -Guatemala City-; Aninat Gallery -Santiago de Chile-; Proyecto Paralelo - Mexico City-; House of Gaga -Mexico City-; La Balsa Arte -Bogotá- and Piero Atchugarry -Garzón-.

On this very special edition, the presence of Latin America will take on a central role. The Fair will incorporate a special Latin American art section, produced in collaboration with Mariano Mayer. In a new model that puts forward the possibility of including works that do not require transportation for their exhibition or that rely on the complicity of other galleries, this area will boast the presence of works from galleries such as Arróniz -Mexico City-; Casa Triangulo, Luciana Brito -São Paulo-; Constitución, Herlitzka + Faria, Nora Fisch, Piedras and Rolf Art -Buenos Aires-; Die Ecke -Santiago de Chile-; Instituto de Visión, Nueveochenta -Bogotá-, and Vigil Gonzales -Cuzco-, among others.

As ever, ARCOmadrid will place emphasis on new and upcoming galleries who present interesting proposals and facilitate the discovery of other creators. Through its Opening Programme, curated by Övül Durmuşoğlu and Julia Morandeira, the fair will provide a space for exploring galleries such as Suprainfinit -Bucharest-; Jahmek -Luanda-; The Pill -Istanbul-; Balcony -Lisbon- or Eugster Belgrade -Belgrade-.

In addition to the gallery contents, ARCOmadrid will present other spaces set to broaden the visitors’ perspective of contemporary art. From ArtsLibris, the contemporary publishing fair, to the cultural spaces, including the ARCOmadrid Forum, with an intense programme of debates hinging on three axes: the future of the market and the art fairs; sustainability, agenda 2030 and contemporary art, and creating for the future.

ARCOmadrid 2021 will be held from July 7th to 11th in pavilions 7 and 9 of IFEMA MADRID, dedicating the first three days exclusively to professionals while it will open its doors to the public at the weekend.
