ARCOmadrid 2023

From February 22nd to 26th, the International Contemporary Art Fair, ARCOmadrid 2023, once again takes centre stage on the art scene with a high participation level thanks to the sector’s confidence and commitment. ARCOmadrid has fulfilled its potential as an active market and an outstanding place to raise the visibility of the artists while driving knowledge and research into contemporary art through the growing interest of the international galleries participating in the fair.

A total of 211 galleries from 36 countries are participating this year where 170 are in the General Programme. In the curated section, there are 19 galleries in The Mediterranean: A Round Sea; 17 galleries in Opening by Allianz, and 11 galleries in Never the Same. Latin American Art.

This year’s edition of ARCOmadrid  has the Mediterranean at its core. Here’s a few highlights from the General Programme:


The research theme of ARCOmadrid this year is: The Mediterranean: A Round Sea, curated by Marina Fokidis, with the advice of Bouchra Khalili, Hila Peleg and Pedro G. Romero. It aims to mobilise the relations that flow from bottom to top and from side to side in an effort to reach the point where the shared intensities of this geographic area converge. Here are some highlights below:



Opening by Allianz stands out for its understanding of the international young gallery scene, bringing together a healthy selection by the curators Julia Morandeira Arrizabalaga and Yina Jiménez Suriel, of 17 proposals presented by galleries from Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Marseilles, Munich, Amsterdam, Cluj-Napoca, Bogota and Lima and more.



The section Never the Same. Latin American Art continues to explore the diversity of art forms, practices and sensitivities from Latin America. Curated by Mariano Mayer and Manuela Moscoso, it will be made up of a selection of artists from Latin America with a total of 11 galleries.
