The Best Week for Art in Madrid

Last week has been by far one of my favorite weeks of the year! Art surrounded the city with such an interesting proposal of Art fairs: ARCOmadrid16, Art Madrid and Just Mad.

Three main Art Fairs for all budgets and kind of collectors and visitors:
ARCOmadrid16: The oldest and biggest of all. They have celebrated their 35th anniversary and although it is a ride going to IFEMA, it's really worth as the galleries exposing their art works represent the best of the last trends of International Contemporary Art.  For this anniversary, most of the Art galleries who were in the first edition have repeated. This fact shows how consistent this Art Fair is. Some of my favourite artists were in art fair like Antonio López in Marlborough Gallery with his bathing lady worth 2.5 million euros, Anish Kaapor in Lisson Gallery with his Triangle Mirror and Alex Katz who could be seen in several galleries.

We also enjoyed very much a new project named Truck Art Project whose aim is turning commercial trucks into mobile art exhibits from some of the most important contemporary and urban art Spanish Artists.
They have celebrated their 11th edition in a very centric venue: Madrid City Townhall, which makes the visit very nice as the glass roof brings light to the whole art pieces. Prices are more affordable starting from 600€ onwards but also important art pieces like spectacular sculptures from Joan Miró, who actually could be touched by blind people.
Just Mad: Madrid proposal for emerging artists in COAM. A very dear art fair with some friends and family working on it, actually some of my favourites IAM and Up&Coming  with great photographer Beatriz Dubois also in a very centric venue and with prices for everybody which makes it easy to buy nice art pieces for your home.

See you next year Madrid!
