ARCO Madrid
ince 1982, ARCO has become firmly established on the world contemporary art scene: a unique platform between Europe and the Americas. According to Paris gallery
owner Guillaume Sultana, "It has a good positioning in Europe because it takes place in February – a slack period in the calendar of major events – and because of its format bringing together top-notch European and Latin American galleries, which we don't see elsewhere in Europe. It's the only one to have established this link." Up till now, Art Basel Miami Beach and its satellite fairs provided the best window onto the South American market. Today, a gallery like Anita Schwartz of Rio de Janeiro comes to ARCO "to participate in a second international fair after Art Basel Miami Beach in December". The event could even compete with a number of South American fairs, according to Guillaume Sultana, who thinks that "ARCO is now more interesting than Zona Maco in Mexico, because it is more 'curated', less expensive and closer. A new experience that makes it possible to take more risks."

When the art market and institutions cosy up
There is no doubt that the fair is international, with only 68 Spanish galleries out of the 224 in this edition (30%). After Spain, Germany is the most represented with 33 galleries, then South America with 30. Several are returning after a gap of a few years, like the Zurich galleries Peter Kilchmann (with work by Teresa Margolles), Bob Van Orsow (who after four years away is presenting Julian Opie and Klaas Kloosterboer) and Mai 36 (with Pedro Cabrita Reis, Raúl Cordero and Thomas Ruff, among others), not to mention the Argentinian gallery Del Infinito with Julio Le Parc, the Paris gallery Chantal Crousel, and Esther Schipper from Berlin. This is all cause for great pride. "You just need to glance at the list of galleries and above all the conference programme to realise the stupendous amount of work that has gone into this", says François Dournes of the Lelong
