ARCOmadrid 2012 INTERNATIONAL MEETING FOR ART PROFESSIONALS

In addition to the changes introduced for the last edition, ARCOmadrid 2012 has adopted some new initiatives that will reinforce its character as a platform for discovering and investigation about artists. The two new projects are: Highlighted Artist which aims to highlight one artist per booth and for which a new catalogue will be published, and SOLO OBJECTS, a section located at various areas of the fair with works selected by the curators collaborating with ARCOmadrid.

The presence of The Netherlands as the Guest of Honour at ARCOmadrid 2012, in FOCUS: THE NETHERLANDS, will be another big attraction. In collaboration with the Mondriaan Foundation and the Dutch Embassy in Spain, ARCOmadrid 2012 is going to present 14 Dutch galleries selected by the curator Xander Karskens, who is responsible for the international contemporary art collection and programme at Museum De Hallen Haarlem. The Dutch presence in Madrid will be reinforced by exhibitions in several museums and institutions.
