Expo. Residentes. Flavia Tótoro. Chile.

MADRID.- The Spanish International Contemporary Art Fair, Art Madrid celebrates its fifth year from 17 to 21 February 2010, in the Pabellón de Cristal at the Casa de Campo in Madrid, with the presence of 65 galleries, selected from among the most prestigious national and international scene. The fair reinforces on this edition their commitment to contemporary Spanish art and renews its support for emerging artists and young galleries.

Art Madrid is a fair aimed specifically to contemporary art collectors and has a complementary relation with other fairs, helping to convert Madrid into the international art capital during the month of February, being a well known event of the city in the artistic circuit.

The commitment to the Spanish contemporary art materializes in the fact that 90% of the galleries are Spanish. Numbers that allows Art Madrid to be not only the second contemporary art fair of in Spain for the number of galleries, but also the one that has a higher proportion of Spanish galleries, coming from 13 autonomous regions. In this respect, 9 galleries from the Spanish Aragón Autonomous Community will be at the fair, with the appointment of the Aragón Goverment and the cooperation of the Aragonese Contemporary Art Galleries Association. Moreover, Art Madrid will receive 6 international galleries (4 Europeans y 2 Latin Americans), from Portugal, France, Colombia and Cuba.

Commitment with emerging artists and youg galleries
Art Madrid hosts for the second consecutive year, a space dedicated to emerging art, into the Young Art program, which receives the younger artists and galleries with less than five years of existence. There are 46 artists (35 of them less than 40 years old) from 10 galleries, which will show their works in 20 different spaces (three more than last year).

A big art gallery from the XXth y XXIth Centuries
During five days, the Pabellón de Cristal transforms into a big art gallery were you can see reunited paintings, sculptures, photographies and so on from all over the world, from big names of the historic avantgarde, like Picasso, Miró, Vasarely, De Chirico, Sonia Delaunay, Arman, Bonifacio, Torres-García and Le Corbusier; or the second half of the XXth Century: Warhol, Richard Serra, Wilfredo Lam, Francesco Clemente, Botero, A. R. Penck, Julian Opie, Schnabel or Gerhard Richter, with many more. Of course the biggest names in the contemporary Spanish art will be represented, as the likes of Tàpies, Antonio López, Canogar, Palazuelo, Torner, Arroyo, Chillida, Equipo Crónica o Miquel Barceló, and the next artist’s generation, like Evru-Zush, Verbis, Plensa, Carmen Calvo, Eva Lootz, Alexanco, Gonzalo Sicre, Pérez Villalta, Francisco Leiro…

One more year, the fair hosts big names of contemporary photography, as Chema Madoz, Thomas Ruff, Thomas Struth, Rax Rinnekangas, Marcos López, Alberto Schommer or emerging Spanish artists, like Salvador Díaz, Juan Francisco Casas, Carlos Salazar, Jacinto Moros, Samuel Salcedo and Michel Pérez, among others.

“Residentes: Artistas Latinoamericanos en España”
Moreover, the fair will work within the Official Program for the Independence Bicentennial Commemoration of Latin American countries. For this reason, it will feature an exclusive space dedicated to this event. The exhibition "Residentes: artistas latinoamericanos en España," shows the work of eleven emerging Latin American artists who live in Spain. Those artists come from Argentina, Colombia, Chile and Mexico.

Creation of the Art Madrid Collection of Unique Works on paper
A significant innovation is the creation of the Art Madrid Collection of Unique Works on paper. Its goal will be original works on paper (not serial) by Contemporary Spanish artists. The acquisitions will be done during the fair, among the participating galleries.
