Once again, Art Madrid has some of the best art galleries in Catalonia: 3 Punts Gallery, Marc Calzada Gallery, Miquel Alzueta Gallery, Alonso Vidal Gallery and Zielinsky Contemporary Art Gallery
They all come from Barcelona and portray an interesting range of possibilities within contemporary art, from pieces with the unmistakable imprint of the Spanish avant-garde of the XXth century, to icons of urban art and emerging artists of enormous projection.

Eduardo Marco, Colorfield 21, 2015. Photography
The Zielinsky Gallery is one of the youngest participants in Art Madrid’17. It was born in 2015 and represents contemporary artists, mainly from Europe and Latin America. It promotes artistic and cultural exchange between the two continents and wants to break away from hermetic projects and unilateral ideas, creating links between collectors and neophytes in the art world, bringing them closer to different cultures. In our fai we will see pieces by his artists Yamandú Canosa, Daniel Orson Ybarra, Eduardo Marco and Luca Benites.
Memory is a key in the work of the Uruguayan artists Yamandú Canosa and Daniel Orson Ybarra; Brazilian artist Eduardo Marco will surprise us with his photographs that uncover "what is hidden from the common gaze", and the architect and artist Luca Benites will share with the public a work defined by a look to and from the city.
