“A” Awards

What are the “A” Awards

Fundación ARCO presents the “A” Awards for Collecting at ARCOmadrid. This initiative, which aims to reward and stimulate collecting, acknowledges the artistic value of collector and institution funds, as well as the work in support of the dissemination of contemporary art done by national and international collectors, since its creation in 1997.

After the meeting of the Board of Trustees and the Advisory Council of Fundación ARCO, the work of six important collections is acknowledged during the “A” Awards ceremony. This will take place at the Casino de Madrid, after which a dinner will be held at which funds will be raised for the acquisition of works for the collection at ARCOmadrid and ARCOlisboa.
