ARCOmadrid 2018

ARCOMADRID, Madrid

View of The Future section, ARCOmadrid, 2018.
by

Lorena Munoz-Alonso

This year’s edition of ARCOmadrid embraced a temporal and conceptual gambit: the Future. It was, however, mostly corralled in the eponymous section at the fair, curated by Chus Martínez, Rosa Lleó, and Elise Lammer and featuring works by artists from 20 international galleries, including Nara Roesler, São Paulo; Union Pacific,... continue reading

ARCOMADRID, Madrid

Javier Téllez, Caligari und der Schlafwandler, 2008.

Lorena Munoz-Alonso

This year’s edition of ARCOmadrid Art Fair was having none of the doom and gloom that usually accompany the fair.
