MADRID.- ARCOmadrid is collaborating again this year with the DecorAcción festival, this time with ARCO GALLERYWalk. With this new initiative ARCOmadrid offers a series of free guided visits to galleries in the Barrio de las Letras district of Madrid. So, from 29 September to 1 October, anyone interested can take part in these walks which will introduce them to the spaces, programmes and the exhibitions with which the galleries get the new season off to a start.

The visits will be led by Sara García Fernández and Lola Iglesias Lago, two young art experts appointed by ARCOmadrid, who will take groups of a maximum of ten people on an hour long walk of the different spaces. These walks will be a perfect occasion to meet and socialise while visiting galleries, seeing interesting exhibitions and chatting with gallerists. Drinks will be provided during ARCO GalleryWalk by Bombay, an ARCOmadrid collaborating brand.

The galleries chosen for the visits are Benveniste Contemporary; Espacio Mínimo; Formato Cómodo; Helga de Alvear; La Fábrica, Maisterravalbuena and Raquel Ponce.

Organised by the Amigos de ARCO Association, this activity responds to the fair’s interest in helping to drive the activity of art galleries, encouraging a greater awareness of contemporary art and reinforcing Madrid as a unique cultural destination.

ARCO GALLERYWalk is part of the programme of activities for the second DecorAcción, an event organised by the Barrio de las Letras Association and the magazine Nuevo Estilo, to be held from 29 September to 1 October. Over these three days the art galleries, antique shops; decoration and interior design stores and restaurants in the barrio will transform it into a true festival of decoration and design.
