Fundación ARCO, established by IFEMA in 1987, aims to promote collecting and the research and dissemination of contemporary art. Since its inception, it has actively participated in the advancement of collecting in Spain, modernising it and opening it up to new possibilities beyond the traditional domestic market. The Fundación ARCO Collection, today with more than 300 pieces, brings together artworks acquired annually at ARCOmadrid and it is currently on loan at the CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo in Móstoles in the Madrid Autonomous Region.

Lisbon will host the Criteria exhibition starting on January 30, made up of a selection of pieces from the Fundación ARCO/IFEMA Collection. It can be visited until April 21 at the Galeria do Torreão Nascente de la Cordoaria, a venue managed by Galerias Municipais / EGEAC.

Curated by Miguel von Hafe Pérez, the exhibition will feature a total of 37 pieces by 33 artists, all of them acquired at different editions of ARCO. The exhibition will host pieces by Portuguese artists such as Ana Jotta; Carlos Bunga; Filipa César; Francisco Tropa; Gil Heitor Cortesão; Helena Almeida; Jorge Molder; Miguel Palma; Pedro Cabrita Reis; Rui Toscano; Vasco Araújo, and Von Calhau!, and will be placed in an international context alongside works by artists such as Ângela Ferreira; Antoni Muntadas; Arnulf Rainer; Babi Badalov; Christian Boltanski; Danh Vō; Elmgreen & Dragset; Francesc Ruiz; Giuseppe Penone; Gwenneth Boelens; Ibon Aranberri; Jarbas Lopes; John Chamberlain; Lucia Koch; Marlena Kudlicka; Miguel Regina; Ryan Gander; Thomas Ruff; Wolfgang Tillmans; Yinka Shonibare and Yorgos Sapountzis.

The Câmara Municipal de Lisboa's invitation to Fundación ARCO  to create the Criteria exhibition is part of its private collection exhibition programme, and will serve to strengthen ARCO and IFEMA's ties with Portugal even further, as well as to continue promoting the work of Fundación ARCO in the furtherance of collecting and the appreciation of contemporary art, especially on the Portuguese scene. 

Meanwhile, the Sala Alcalá 31 in the Madrid Autonomous Region is hosting the exhibition titled Hay cosas encerradas dentro de los muros que, si salieran de pronto a la calle y gritaran, llenarían el mundo.
