The prize rewards the best stand in the section by reimbursing the cost of the space at ARCOmadrid 2020. The jury, which consists of Ferrán Barenblit, director of MACBA, Barcelona and Andrea Pacheco, independent curator, Chile-Spain, recognised the work of artists Hellen Ascoli and Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa, represented by the winning gallery.

The awards ceremony was chaired by Juan Cierco, corporate manager of Iberia, accompanied by the curators of the Diálogos section, Agustín Pérez Rubio and Lucía Sanromán, and the director of ARCOmadrid, Maribel López.

The Diálogos programme at ARCOmadrid 2020 analyses contemporary creation focused on the dialogue between two creators, with a special focus on Latin America and exhibiting artists from different generations.

Iberia is a participant in ARCOmadrid 2020 as a sign of its commitment to raising the profile of Spanish talent around the world. The airline has a 360-square-metre area in the corridor that connects two exhibition halls. The “Espacio Talento a bordo” is a place where visitors can rest and think, and gives visibility to the different territories of the #Talentoabordo project, which Iberia uses to support and internationalise Spanish culture and the Spanish language.
