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.

Following the meeting of the ARCO Foundation's Board of Trustees and Advisory Council, the work of important collectors is recognized in different categories. The awards ceremony takes place at the Foundation's annual dinner, during which funds are raised for the acquisition of works during ARCOmadrid, which will become part of the ARCO Foundation Collection.
