Art Madrid'14: Contemporary art fair presents its most dynamic and innovative edition
Art Madrid'14 has about 50 national and international galleries participating in the General Program.

MADRID.- The contemporary art fair Art Madrid'14 celebrates its ninth edition, from 19 to 23 February 2014, with the intention of identifying and promote the best of international contemporary art, with special attention to what is done within our borders, at a realistic and dynamic fair.

One of the news of this year is the location of the fair. The scenario can not be better, the “Palacio de Cibeles”, monumental building opened in 1919, which today houses the Cibeles CentroCentro Culture and Citizenship Center, an institution to bring arts and culture of the XXI century to the public. The fair has 2,800 m2, an exhibition space designed by the architect Alberto Martin de Lucio, with a great dome of iron and glass. The “Palacio de Cibeles” is the main axis of the Arts Promenade in Madrid next to the Prado Museum, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection and the Reina Sofia Museum.

Art Madrid'14 has about 50 national and international galleries participating in the General Program -contemporary art- and the One Project Program with a smaller space and price to show eight projects of the younger galleries. The offer of the fair includes historical avant-garde hand by specialized galleries.

Quality content in a great scenario for professionals, collectors and the public, this is the new Art Madrid'14 philosophy.

Art Madrid features in this issue with Javier Rubio Nomblot and Carlos Delgado Mayordomo as curators for ONE PROJECT program. This "tandem” shows 8 artists projects ( "solo show" ) that extend the limits of the flexible and tricky defined term: "emerging art".

Javier Rubio (Paris, 1961), with a long career as an art critic and usual collaborator in specialized publications, explains that "in its most literal meaning, 'emerging' defines an artist who is not consolidated in terms of market value. However, today, 'emerging' represents diversification, and, its acquisition an opportunity and a symbolic support to the art of the future".

To Carlos Delgado Mayordomo (Madrid, 1979), Coordinator of the Cultural projects in the International Fund for the Arts (Fiart) and independent curator in institutions of Spain and Latin America, "emerging artist label may be operative as visibility catalyst and as strategy to bring new names and addresses to a context that sometimes is repetitive in its main voices".

Each one of the projects selected in ONE PROJECT shows the work of a single artist, his point of view about the world and the creation process, his character, his speech and his particular language to achieve, in a general glanze, the limits of what we know as 'emerging’.

One of the biggest bets of Art Madrid'14 is partnership and collaboration with institutions beyond the fair with the desire to create positive synergies that lead to new and better activities that reinforce the culture in general and art in particular.

Among the most important contributions is the agreement with CASA AMÉRICA, public institution founded in 1990 to strengthen ties between Spain and Latin America, in whose headquarters in Madrid will hold a lecture. Within the series of talks, highlights the one led by Intermón/Oxfam that presents its project "More and better Aid" presenting the work of some contemporary artists in various disadvantaged countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America.

In addition, Art Madrid'14 organized the exhibition "RE-PRESENTATIONS" in the Korean Cultural Center, a collective exhibition of Spanish and Korean artists curated by artist Carlos Cartaxo.
