What is ARCOlisboa?
ARCOlisboa 2023 turned the Portuguese capital into a meeting place for collectors, gallery owners, artists and professionals from all over the world. In its sixth edition, from 25th to 28th May, the Cordoaria Nacional hosted the artistic content of the galleries selected by the Organising Committee and the curatorial teams of the different sections.
The main focus of the Fair, the General Programme, was made up of national and international galleries whose artistic proposals confirm their commitment to quality content. In addition, ARCOlisboa was also strengthening the two curated sections: Africa in Focus, curated by Paula Nascimento, which included the participation of galleries from the African continent. On the other hand, Opening Lisboa, curated by Chus Martínez and Luiza Teixeira de Freitas, was a section that investigated new artistic languages and spaces in order to bring new content and research to the fair.
ARCOlisboa 2024 will open its doors on May, dedicating this first day to the professionals, after which it will open its doors to the general public.
