ARCO, the most important contemporary art fair in Spain, will be held in Madrid from February 23 to 27. The fair, which is traditionally held in February, was forced to make a special edition last year in the summer, and postpone its 40th anniversary, which it celebrates this year under the title "40+1". Gallery owners' attendance at ARCO will be slightly lower than pre-pandemic levels. In total, you can see the proposals of 180 galleries from 30 countries (in 2020 there were more than 200).
The most expensive galleries do not want women artists (in ARCO either)
The fair proposes to dedicate special attention to art made by women, dedicating the Artist Projects spaces exclusively to women. These are some locations distributed by the fair and dedicated to a solo project. It will be the first time that they dedicate themselves entirely to the artists.
In a press conference held this Friday, the organization has indicated that to enter it will be necessary to present the COVID certificate or a Spain Travel Health QR. If you do not have the certificate, a negative test (PCR or antigens) done in the previous 24 hours will be necessary. Similarly, it will not be possible to enter without an FFP2 type mask.
