Art Madrid is returning to Madrid Art Week and will be held for its 17th edition from February 23–27 in the Glass Gallery at Cibeles Palace. A unique, open, and luminous space, this venue is located in the “Landscape of Light” right beside the Prado Museum, Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, and Reina Sofia Museum.
An Madrid Art Week fair with a markedly multidisciplinary character, Art Madrid’22 will bring together 35 Spanish and international galleries representing artists who work with painting, sculpture, graphic work, photography, and video art from the early 20th century to the present day. The fair is an inviting, open opportunity for all audiences to discover the contemporary art world.
One Shot Hotels is once again a sponsor of Art Madrid and has prepared two initiatives to renew its unwavering commitment to contemporary art.
The first is the program curated by Natalia Alonso, who will offer a tour of various works exhibited at Art Madrid’22 to give the audience a closer look at the art market ecosystem.
The other initiative is the collecting program. This service aims to both boost the galleries’ sales activity and advise new buyers on art acquisition.
Finally, the fair is co-organising, together with video art platform Proyector, a parallel program focused on video creation, action and performance art under the curatorship of Mario Gutiérrez. In this edition, Proyector will focus on investigating and rethinking the concept of the “loop” through the pioneers of video art, from the points of view of creation as well as distribution and collecting. During the fair, audiences will also enjoy an installation by Gary Hill, considered the founder of New Media Art, and two live works by Hill himself; alongside creations by sound art pioneer Llorenç Barber.
This year, the Art Madrid selection committee was once again in charge of evaluating applications from galleries interested in participating in the fair’s 17th edition. To guarantee an Art Madrid’22 program with a high level of artistic quality, the committee based its selection on the proposals received and the careers of the artists represented. This year’s committee was made up of Alfonso de la Torre (critic and curator), Aurora Vigil-Escalera (gallerist), Natalia Alonso (critic and curator), Angel Samblancat (gallerist and consultant at international fairs), and Javier López (gallerist).
Galleries that will participate in Art Madrid for the first time include: Galerie Alex Serra (Köln, Germany), Arena Martínez Projects (Madrid, Spain), ARTITLEDcontemporary (Herpen, Netherlands), Dr.Robot Gallery (Valencia, Spain), GARNA Art Gallery (Madrid, Spain) y Jackie Shor Arte (São Paulo, Brazil).

More than 160 artists will showcase their works at the fair in different disciplines, such as painting, sculpture, photography and installation, offering visitors a unique experience to enjoy contemporary art.
They include some of today’s most prominent emerging artists, such as Mária Švarbová, Carmen Pastrana, Chang Teng-Yuan, Costa Gorelov and Camille Bonneau; mid-career artists like Carlos Cartaxo, Gerard Fernández Rico and Marcos Tamargo; and established artists such as Chema Mádoz, David Rodríguez Caballero, Carmen Calvo, Uiso Alemany, Alberto Guerrero, Josecho López Llorens, Manolo Valdés, Rafael Barrios and Lars Zech, among others.
