ARCOmadrid, held annually in Madrid, Spain, is a renowned international contemporary art fair that has been a significant platform for the contemporary art market since its inception in 1982. Organized by IFEMA, the fair brings together over 200 galleries from 30 countries, presenting a diverse range of artistic expressions from the historical avant-garde to the latest emerging art.

The fair is known for its carefully curated sections, including the General Programme, Dialogues, and Special Projects, which showcase a meticulously selected assortment of national and international galleries. These sections provide a comprehensive view of contemporary art, fostering an active market and promoting knowledge of art.

One of the key features of ARCOmadrid is its commitment to fostering dialogue between the international art scene and Spanish art. The fair has played a pivotal role in enhancing and globalizing the Spanish art market by introducing an international event that attracts galleries, critics, and collectors to Madrid.

In addition to the galleries, ARCOmadrid offers a range of activities for visitors, including special events, catering and resting areas, and collecting advisory programmes like First Collector. These offerings aim to provide a holistic experience for art enthusiasts, collectors, and professionals alike.

Over the years, ARCOmadrid has evolved to become an unmissable event in Madrid's cultural calendar, attracting art enthusiasts from around the world.
