Since 30 January, Lisbon has hosted the Criteria exhibition, made up of a selection of works from the Fundación ARCO/IFEMA Collection, which are on show until 21 April at the Galeria do Torreão Nascente de la Cordoaria, a gallery managed by Galerias Municipais / EGEAC.

Curated by Miguel von Hafe Pérez , who has been associated with the Fundación ARCO Collection since 2010, firstly as the director of CGAC and later as the head of acquisitions. He is also a great connoisseur of Portuguese art after his visit to the Museo Serralves and other institutions in the country.
The exhibition has a total of 37 works by 33 artists, all of them acquired at different editions of ARCO. The exhibition hosts pieces by Portuguese artists such as Ana Jotta, Carlos Bunga, Filipa César, Francisco Tropa, Gil Heitor Cortesão, Helena Almeida, Jorge Molder, Miguel Palma, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Rui Toscano, Vasco Araújo and Von Calhau!, which are placed in an international context through the presence of works by artists such as Ângela Ferreira, Antoni Muntadas, Arnulf Rainer, Babi Badalov, Christian Boltanski, Danh VÅ�, Elmgreen&Dragset, Francesc Ruiz, Giuseppe Penone, Gwenneth Boelens, Ibon Aranberri, Jarbas Lopes; John Chamberlain, Lucia Koch, Marlena Kudlicka, Regina de Miguel, Ryan Gander, Thomas Ruff, Wolfgang Tillmans, Yinka Shonibare and Yorgos Sapountzis.

The invitation from the Câmara Municipal de Lisboa to Fundación ARCO to put on the Criteria exhibition is part of its programme of exhibitions of private collections and, in this case, serves to further strengthen, if possible, the ties that ARCO and IFEMA have with Portugal, as well as to continue pushing forward the work that Fundación ARCO is carrying out in the promotion of collecting and the appreciation of contemporary art, in particular that on the Portuguese scene. The exhibition will serve to strengthen ARCO’s ties with Portugal, as well as to spread the work of Fundación ARCO in promoting collecting and the appreciation of contemporary art. During the exhibition, there will be activities, conferences and visits.

The presence of Latin America has been constant since the founding of both collections: on the one hand, through the exhibition programming of CA2M, and; on the other, through the emphasis put on Central and South American art at the ARCO Fair since its very beginnings.
