Titled “The Present Has Many Stories“, miart is hosting 186 galleries from 19 countries and 4 continents, 7 Awards and a 100,000 € acquisition fund.

Alessandro Rabottini, Artistic Director, stated: “miart has developed a formula in which the Italian art system, national and international galleries, collectors from many continents and the public and private institutions of Milan recognize and support is the result of this choral work, of a multiplicity of voices that represent an enormous wealth and plurality of visions: ours is a complex present that requires both a historical memory and imagination on the present and the future, and it is this diversity and inclusion that the many international galleries present at miart will bring to our audience”.

3 weeks ago

Running four days from 25 to 28 January 2018 at the Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Centre, ART STAGE Singapore closed its eighth edition yesterday, January 28. The Fair brought to Singapore a strong international art community including collectors and leading artists. The fair saw stronger sales results in all price categories. Galleries reported brisk sales and noted numerous reservations made by buyers and collectors from Southeast Asia, Asia, Australia, the Middle East, Europe and the United States.

“I am very pleased with the Fair this year. ART STAGE has exerted a prodigious influence on Singapore’s contemporary artistic life. It has become the anchor for the city’s annual art week, and Sundaram Tagore Gallery is proud to have been associated with the Fair since its inception,” said Mr Sundaram Tagore, gallery director of Sundaram Tagore Gallery.

“Based on the opening day, the sales were stronger than last year. We have sold a painting by Indonesian painter Yunizar, as well as the up-and-coming Erizal As, and some works by younger artists who are new additions to the Gajah Gallery family,” said Mr Jasdeep Sandhu, gallery director of Gajah Gallery.

ART STAGE will return with its sister edition, ART STAGE Jakarta at Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City from 7 to 9 September 2018.

My Art Guide Madrid 2018 Editorial Committee

4 weeks ago

My Art Guide Madrid is a digital issue dedicated to ARCOmadrid and the art week in Madrid, available online and on iOS app.

This edition has been developed thanks to an incredible editorial committee formed by Lucia Casani (Director of La Casa Encendida), Elena Ochoa Foster (Founder and CEO of Ivorypress), and Carlos Urroz Arancibia (Director of ARCOmadrid).
The committee has been working to select the best and most interesting art spaces and exhibitions in town as well as the coolest restaurants and hotels.

Lucia Casani graduated from the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) with a BA in Audiovisual Communications. Between 1997 and 2001 she participated in numerous film and advertising shoots within the Film Directing Department. In 2002 she joined the arts staff of the recently founded cultural centre La Casa Encendida and helped to launch the Audiovisual Department, which she coordinated from 2002 to 2009. In 2010 she began to supervise the centre’s cultural programme, and in September 2014 she became director of La Casa Encendida, a solid initiative with a stellar reputation in both Spain and abroad. Since then, she has maintained the centre’s commitment to contemporary creativity in the areas of art and culture, education, the environment and solidarity.

Elena Ochoa Foster is a publisher and curator of contemporary art. In 1996 she founded in London Ivorypress, a private initiative that carries out publishing and curating activities, which comprises an art gallery, a publishing house specialising in artists’ books and a bookshop specialising in photography, architecture and contemporary art. Elena Ochoa Foster is the CEO of Ivorypress, where she has collaborated on publishing, educative, and artistic projects and has curated international exhibitions.
She was a tenured lecturer in Psychopathology at Madrid’s Complutense University for almost two decades and was honorary professor at King’s College in London until 2001. She has worked at RNE and Televisión Española and has been a regular contributor to several newspapers.
She is a member of the board of art directors of the Mutual Art Trust and of the Advisor Board of the Prix Pictet photography award. She has been the president of the jury of the Swiss photography award Alt+1000. She was the president of the Tate International Council for five years and member of the Tate Foundation’s board of directors from 2004 to 2008 as well as that of the Noguchi Foundation.  She runs the C Photo project, whose aim is to promote photography through publications, exhibitions and academic and institutional support. She is the Chair of the Council of the Serpentine Galleries, London, UK, and serves as Correspondent Academician in Switzerland for the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, Madrid, Spain.

Carlos Urroz Arancibia is the director of ARCOmadrid since May 2011. The International Contemporary Art Fair is dedicated to creating a market for contemporary art in the country. His contributions to this project include forging the link with Latin America through the section dedicated to solo artist stands (Solo Projects), the new section for young galleries (Opening) and the “ARCO Professional Meetings”, the new activity format linked to the fair and reserved for experts in the different fields, which has brought over 100 museum directors, biennials and professionals to Madrid each year.  He is the natural-born chairperson of the ARCO Foundation, for which he has put forward new activities such as the “Gallery Walks”, aimed at organising visits to contemporary art galleries, and the “ARCO Foundation Platform Lunch” through which funds are raised yearly for the purchase of works during the fair and the return of the Collection to Madrid.
From 2005 to 2011, he created and directed UP (Urroz Proyectos), a company aimed at designing and implementing projects within the cultural organisation and communication context, collaborating with the Loewe Foundation, the Biennial of the Canary Islands, SEACEX (State Society for Cultural Actions Abroad), Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, the Murcia Region. From 1998 to 2006 he was director of Galería Helga de Alvear, where he worked with important international artists. Carlos Urroz is a Corporate Legal Adviser (ICADE E-1 Universidad Pontificia Comillas).

My Art Guide Mexico City 2018 Editorial Committee

1 month ago

My Art Guide Mexico City is a paper guide and digital issue dedicated to Zona Maco and the art week in Mexico City, available online and on iOS app.

This edition has been developed thanks to an incredible editorial committee formed by Carlos Amorales (Artist), Juan Gaitán (Director of Museo Tamayo), and Mauricio Galguera (Director of Galería Hilario Galguera and co-director of El Cuarto de máquinas).
The committee has been working to select the best and most interesting art spaces and exhibitions in town.

Carlos Amorales (b. Mexico City) is a multidisciplinary artist who explores the limits of language and translation systems to venture into the field of cultural experimentation. He uses graphic production as a tool to develop linguistic structures and alternative working models that allow new forms of interpretation and foster collectivity. In his projects, Amorales examines identity construction processes, proposes a constant re signification of forms present in his work, and provokes a clash between art and pop culture. He represented the Mexican Pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale.

Juan Gaitán  is director of Museo Tamayo since 2015 and currently based in Mexico City and Berlin.

Mauricio Galguera (b. Mexico City) is director of Hilario Galguera gallery since 2013 and co-founder and co-director of El cuarto de máquinas.
Founded in 2006, Hilario Galguera Gallery is hosted in an early 20th Century manor from the times of Porfirio Díaz in one of Mexico City’s oldest neighbourhoods, San Rafael. From 2008 to 2011 the gallery opened a space in Leipzig, Germany, in a 19th Century yarn factory, thus becoming the first Mexican gallery with a space in Europe. Since 2012 it keeps an office in Berlin.
El cuarto de máquinas is a space for experimentation through art projects. Since 2015 it has focused on the production and promotion of exhibitions of young or emerging artists, experimental projects and the development of a program of curated samples.
