ARTFAIRS is very pleased to announce the list of exhibitors for JUSTMAD4, a selection of cutting-edge and established contemporary art galleries, art spaces and projects presented during the most important art week in Madrid. JUSTMAD Emerging Art Fair celebrates its fourth edition to be held at the Silken Puerta América Hotel, an architectural icon designed collectively by 18 prestigious architects and designers such as Norman Foster, Teresa Sapey, John Pawson, Zaha Hadid, David Chipperfield, Marc Newson, Ron Arad, Arata Isozaki and Jean Nouvel.

JUSTMAD is not only an international marketplace of contemporary art, but also an art fair with a friendly atmosphere, where networking with galleries, collectors and curators is horizontal and very easy. While continuing its tradition of highlighting exhibitors from Spain, JUSTMAD welcomes an important number of international emerging ones from Europe and Latin America. JUSTMAD will host 60 galleries, art spaces and projects presenting exhibitions that span across all media, from works on paper, painting, and sculpture, to performance, installation, and video art.

JUSTMAD is directed by Enrique Polanco, his team Rocio Bardín, Arianne Gaazenbeek with Javier Duero as artistic director of the fair, and an advisory committee comprised of gallery NoMínimo (Guayaquil), Eva Ruíz (Madrid) and La Caja Blanca (Mallorca-London).

The fair has a General Program and two more programs will be introduced this year;  a young galleries and spaces program titled MyFirstJUST; a program devoted to works on paper and small-format editions of several media titled JUSTFramed.
