The period for submitting applications to participate in ARCOlisboa 2020 is now open. The fair will be held from May 14 to 17 in the historic Cordoaria Nacional and it will turn the Portuguese capital, once more, into a meeting point  for collectors, galleries, artists and art professionals from around the world. This fifth edition of the Fair will host content from 70 galleries selected by the Organising Committee and curators for different sections.

The General Programme, will comprise national and international galleries whose artistic proposals will ratify their commitment to the quality of the contents. In addition, ARCOlisboa will once again give visibility to the African scene through Africa in Focus section, with participation by galleries from this continent. The Opening programme will also be extended, focusing on young galleries, with the aim of providing new information and contents to the Fair.

ArtsLibris, the space dedicated to contemporary art publications, will return to ARCOlisboa and will be the centre of a new space dedicated to art magazines and proposals from independent spaces. This new project will have a new location that will make it more easily accessible and support the wide range of projects exhibited.

ARCOlisboa is adapting its format with less number of curated programmes, to delve deeper into their content, and it is concentrating the fair into 4 days, in order to reinforce the visibility of the exhibition programme in the city's museums and institutions.

ARCOlisboa is once again supported by the Câmara Municipal de Lisboa and Fundação EDP and has the cooperation of all the city's local institutions and main artistic agents, which make the fair possible every year.
