Estampa, the first art fair of the pandemic, closes its doors today

Madrid, Mar 11 (EFE) .- Estampa, the first art fair to be held since the pandemic began, closes today after three days, in which it has shown works by more than a thousand artists from 70 galleries.

The fair, which is held in Madrid, opened last Thursday with great anticipation, inaugurated by the Minister of Culture, José Manuel Rodríguez-Uribes.

Ifema, which is hosting the event, has enlarged the fair space with wider corridors; the 400,000 cubic meters of air in the pavilion are renewed every twenty minutes and the capacity has been reduced to 3,548 people maximum.

Estampa has been held in Hall 6 of the Madrid fair, Ifema, with 10,800 square meters. To access, each visitor has had to pass a control that registers their temperature in the access lathe and FPP2 masks have been distributed at the entrance.

Everything has been digital: entrance, plans and catalog, and the entrance and exit accesses have also been separated.

Galleries such as Juana de Aizpuru (Madrid), Moisés Pérez de Albéniz (Madrid), Mayoral (Barcelona), Cayón (Madrid / Menorca / Manila), Max Estrella (Madrid) or Aural (Alicante / Madrid).

The galleries participating in the General Program are joined by those of the curated section "Generational Dialogues", with a selection made by Alicia Ventura, as well as the project by Victoria Civera, guest artist of this edition, with the installation "Aviator Sibila".

No art fair was held in Spain for a year, the last one was ARCO, just a week before the confinement. The celebration of this fair has been postponed to July pending an assessment of the vaccination process and how international restrictions evolve. This month, the event's advisory committee will assess whether it goes ahead or postponed to next year.
