In the City

With a view to bringing the work of the city’s galleries closer to the public, ARCOmadrid offers a series of visits to contemporary art galleries from different cities, both at the kick-off of the art season and throughout the year. Following the positive reaction to this activity in Madrid and Valencia, itineraries have also been organised in Barcelona.

Through the ARCOgallery Walk, the ARCO Foundation helps bring the interested public closer to galleries, allowing it to learn first-hand how galleries work with artists and how an exhibition is presented in each space while at the same time taking them closer to contemporary creation.

Private visits
From the months of February through December, the ARCO Foundation organises a series of private visits to exhibitions and centres in Madrid for the Friends of ARCO. Once a month, these visits allow for the private appreciation of the most important contemporary art activities and exhibitions in our city. The itinerary is organised in accordance with Madrid’s exhibition calendar.

Access to museums
With the Foundation card, the Friends of ARCO have access to different contemporary art museums in Spain, such as the Museo Nacional Reina Sofía – Madrid; MACBA – Barcelona; LaLaboral – Gijón; CGAC – Santiago de Compostela.
