When ARCO, a major international contemporary art fair, decided to stage the event outside its country of origin for the first time, it chose Portugal as its venue. Yet another indication that "choosing" is indeed an art!
In 2016, the first edition of the Madrid contemporary art fair to be held outside Spain will be staged in Lisbon. The event, at which 40 international galleries will be exhibiting, will be taking place at the Cordoaria Nacional from the 26th to the 29th of May.
This will be a unique opportunity for those who enjoy contemporary art, and will also be a good excuse to get to know Lisbon. Known as the city of light, Lisbon's special luminosity and welcoming ambience mean it is greatly appreciated by artists, photographers and film producers.
