Announcing ARCO’08. Madrid
13th-18th February.
Guest country, Brazil

General public from Friday 15th
 

ARCO, the International Contemporary Art Fair in Madrid, is already preparing next years edition, scheduled from 14th through 18th February 2008. The most noteworthy new feature will be the move to exhibition halls 12 and 14 currently under construction, to be coupled with a restructuring of the fairs various programmes. The upcoming 2008 edition is building on the success of this years fair which saw a rise in sales in the region of 15%, an increase of 20% in collectors and buyers, besides registering a staggering 190,000 visitors. The results reinforced the buoyant Spanish art market and further strengthened ARCOs commercial profile as it looks ahead to 2008.

In this regard, the calendar for ARCO08 gets underway at the end of this coming April, with the launch of the fair and the opening of the period for applications which runs until 22nd June, after which, the Selection Committee will select the galleries to take part during the second week of July. The selection process concludes in September with the confirmation of the various projects in the different curated sections at the fair.

We are also working on our invitational programme for collectors and buyers, furthering our strategy to underscore the professional focus of the art fair, providing incentives to involve big corporations, and heightening ARCOs profile as one of the worlds top fairs, promoting a balance of big international artists, seminal galleries from around the world, and a world-class offer of works on view.

Taking a look at the content of the fair, ARCO is already well advanced in its guest country programme which will be focussed on Brazil, one of the most exciting and dynamic markets for contemporary art in the world. The guest programme is being curated by Moacir dos Anjos and Paulo Sérgio Duarte, and will surely contribute to the further projection of happening art from Brazil.
