What are the new components that Art Madrid 20 will bring into the panorama?

Under the enigmatic title of Salvajes, Art Madrid 20 wanted to go a step further in its program.

ONE PROJECT turns Madrid city into a sphere of dialogue (but also of conflict) where nine artists will share a designated space face to face presenting specific projects to the fair.

The program is directed by the art critic and independent curator Fernando Gómez de la Cuesta.

The goal is to involve the public outside and inside the fair through performances, masterclasses, meetings with artists and a cycle of screenings.

Our opinion about Art Madrid 20

It is interesting to observe how the art industry is opening its events to post-graffiti writers. Clear example of it would be the duo from Valencia, Pichiavo.
