International Contemporary Art in Lisbon
ARCOlisboa will celebrate its 5th anniversary in-person in 2021 at an event that will symbolise the physical reunion between the city of Lisbon and contemporary art. From 13 to 16 May, Lisbon will become one of the most attractive and interesting European art and cultural centres with the participation of galleries, collectors, curators and other professionals, institutions, museums and art centres.
The event will be, now more than ever, a unique way to experience this city's history, architecture and light. Opportunities to discover new artists, places and meet new people are among the main reasons for going to ARCOlisboa.
More than 70 domestic and international galleries will participate in ARCOlisboa 2021 to showcase the vibrant artistic scene in Portugal in dialogue with interesting portfolios from around the world. The General Programme, comprising the galleries selected by the Organising Committee. will once again focus on the quality of their content. Added to this are the curated programs: the successful Opening section, with a growing number of galleries, and Africa en Foco, with fascinating discoveries to tempt collectors and fans of African art.
ARCOlisboa also includes a special section dedicated to contemporary art publications organised by Arts Libris. There will also be a programme of conferences and lectures about art and collecting that will once again make ARCOlisboa an event where leading professionals and collectors participate and share their ideas and projects.
