ARCOlisboa 2021 moves to a digital format
The changed dates of the main international art fairs together with the possible impact the health situation may continue to have on international mobility, has led the Organising Committee of ARCOlisboa and the different players involved in the organisation of Lisbon’s International Contemporary Art Fair, to change the 2021 edition to a digital format, allowing galleries to exhibit their proposals and stay in touch with collectors and buyers from around the world.
To this end, the fair organised by IFEMA MADRID and the Câmara Municipal de Lisboa, has already begun work on the ARCO E-EXHIBITIONS platform, on which it will develop a complete programme of exclusive visits for the galleries. The platform will be active from September 13th to 19th with VIP access from the 12th.
Parallel to this, the Organisation is also working on the next physical edition of ARCOlisboa, scheduled for May 18th to 22nd, 2022 in the Cordoaria Nacional; the usual fair dates, for which the right conditions are expected to be met to guarantee the attendance of collectors, the international dimension of the fair and the success of the galleries.
