Impressions from ARCOlisboa 2017

The contemporary art world once again turns the spotlight on Lisbon for the second edition of ARCOlisboa, organised by IFEMA, from 18 to 21 May in the Fábrica Nacional da Cordoaria. Quality contents and a focus, by the 58 galleries from 13 countries, on projects of a high standard will once again convert ARCOlisboa 2017 into the Portuguese capital’s major art and social event. In addition to the attractions of the Fair, an extensive art and cultural programme will take place in the city, awakening the interest of international collectors, renowned professionals and the general public.

On this edition, the General Programme will welcome 50 galleries selected by the Organising Committee, 58% of which are foreign. Portugal’s most important galleries will be represented: Cristina Guerra, Pedro Cera and Vera Cortês from Lisbon, Murias Centeno, Quadrado Azul –both of which also have venues in the capital- from Oporto, Fernando Santos and Pedro Oliveira along with other interesting projects from Braga - Mario Sequeira- and from the Azores - Fonseca Macedo. Additionally, there will also be a remarkable international presence with galleries such as Elba Benítez, Juana de Aizpuru, Giorgio Persano, Nueveochenta, Vermelho, Monitor, Zak Branicka, among others. Under the Outstanding Artist concept, visitors will focus their attention on works ranging in scope from the historic Avant-gardes to the contemporary classics and current art.
