In Madrid, around the renowned Art Triangle (Prado, Thyssen and Reina Sofía museums), 43 art galleries are the display of contemporary art and the newest creations. In September, from 15 until 17, they present more than 60 artists at Apertura Madrid Gallery Weekend 2016. For three days, the city is becoming the capital of contemporary art and a magnet for luring collectors, visitors, art buffs and anyone who is curious into its streets. Madrid is a moveable feast… of contemporary art.

Apertura Madrid Gallery Weekend 2016 is a journey through all of the disciplines and a trip through the latest in Spanish art and the most outstanding international works. Art is becoming accessible to all. Works by emerging young creators and by names that are already well established in the art sector are displayed side by side at this particular “museum of contemporary art” that comprises the 43 galleries.

The 43 galleries belonging to Arte_Madrid are starting the season by inaugurating their exhibitions simultaneously, extending their opening hours and programming special events. The 7th edition of Apertura Madrid Gallery Weekend will become the biggest event of the world of art after the summer in Europe.

The city’s larger cultural institutions (Reina Sofía Museum, Thyssen Museum, Dos de Mayo Centre, etc.) and ARCOmadrid are also joining in with Apertura Madrid Gallery Weekend 2016 with a wide programme of activities for bringing the most up-to-date creations to the public at large. 

With more than 24,000 visitors at its last edition, Apertura Madrid Gallery Weekend has established itself as one of the most important Gallery Weekends in the world.

ARCOmadrid and Apertura
The activities running parallel to Apertura Madrid Gallery Weekend for bringing contemporary art to the wider public feature the ARCO Gallerywalk, organised in collaboration with the Madrid fair. This initiative involves free tours guided by experts that allow visitors to visit the galleries and discover their artists accompanied by professionals from the world of art.

The big contemporary art festival is organised by the Arte_Madrid gallery association, which currently has 43 members. These galleries usually participate in the most prestigious international fairs, such as Art Basel, Frieze, ARCOmadrid, The Armory Show, FIAC, Artissima Torino, ArtBo, SP Arte, etc. At them, they act as ambassadors for Spanish art on the international art scene.
