The art fair revolves around its core General Programme & ARCO 40 section with 161 galleries from 21 countries. Mixed in among this section are eight galleries selected by Daria Pyrkina, curator of the National Centre for Contemporary Arts and a professor at the Lomonosov Moscow State University, for the FOCUS RUSSIA programme which also hosts major Russian institutions such as Ekaterina Cultural Foundation; Garage Centre for Contemporary Culture; MMOMA Moscow Museum of Modern Art; Multimedia Art Museum; NCCA National Centre for Contemporary Art; Permm Museum of Contemporary Art; State Hermitage Museum; Stella Art Foundation; Victoria Foundation; and Winzavod, as well as an exciting programme of Russian collectors.

Meanwhile, the OPENING: YOUNG EUROPEAN GALLERIES section will feature 19 young galleries selected by the freelance curator and gallerist Maribel López.

Besides the works on exhibit at the booths, the fair is also hosting its usual debates with renowned art world professionals, intellectuals, artists, philosophers and foundations who will be debating issues of interest in various roundtables and meetings. On one hand, the Forum features a range of panel debates focused on Russia, directed by Daria Pyrkina, and others on Collecting, directed by Rosa Martínez, director of the 51st Venice Biennale.

On the other hand, there are six Professional Encounters with Chus Martínez, chief curator at MACBA Barcelona; Latitudes, the independent curatorial office founded by Mariana Cánepa and Max Andrews; Marta Gili, Director of Jeu de Paume, Paris; Adriano Pedrosa, freelance curator from Barcelona, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Co-Director of Exhibitions and Programmes and Director of International Projects, Serpentine Gallery, London; and Lynne Cooke, Deputy director for Conservation, Research and Outreach at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, (MNCARS), Madrid.

The International Collectors Programme is one of the fair's major driving forces. Through it ARCOmadrid invites a select group of 150 international collectors. They will be accompanied at the fair by representatives from museums and institutions such as Maison Rouge from Paris or the Association of Collectors of Portugal, among others, as well as major Spanish collectors, plus a large number of young collectors.
