The Six Most Popular Booths at ARCOmadrid, So Far
For the past week, visitors around the globe have explored Artsy’s exclusive preview of ARCOmadrid, browsing insider highlights and discovering new favorites of their own. To help guide you through the 155 exhibitors and 2,200 works, we present the top six most visited booths so far:
6. Galerie Thomas Schulte: The blue-chip Berlin gallery exhibits a diverse selection from its roster, including a massive painting by Jonathan Lasker and recent sculptures from Turner Prize-winning Richard Deacon.
5. Polígrafa Obra Gráfica: One of the world’s most prestigious limited-edition art publishers, Polígrafa presents prints made in collaboration with some of today’s hottest artists—like market favorite Jacob Kassay, recent Turner winner Laure Provost, and seminal Op artist Carlos Cruz-Diez.
4. Galerie Forsblom: Exhibiting as part of #FocusFinland, a perfect fit given the gallery’s focus on Finnish artists, Forsblom’s centerpiece is an architectural photograph by the much buzzed-about, Ola Kolehmainen, a preeminent figure of the Helsinki School.
3. Leandro Navarro: The Madrid-based gallery with a focus on 20th-century Spanish artists shows a selection of masterpieces of Spanish Modernism. Highlights include a gouache by Joan Miró and an oil painting by Juan Gris.
2. Mai 36 Galerie: Few European galleries rival the international prestige of Mai 36 Galerie, who in Madrid present a wide selection of their major conceptually minded artists, including John Baldessari, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Thomas Ruff.
1. Galeria Marc Domenech: The popular, brand new Barcelona gallery takes the top spot with its diverse selection of 20th-century masters, from Fernand Léger to Roy Lichtenstein, balanced with a few pieces by emerging Spanish talents.
