FROM FIGURE TO ABSTRACTION: FREED NARRATIVES
The future of creation is always to be discovered. Although when studying art we become obsessed with analysing the origins, relationships, links or transformations that characterize works or artists, with the consequent obsession to predict what the next art will bring, the reality is that on many occasions it is more pleasant to discover the stories without preconceived ideas, without frames, in their maximum freedom of expression and in their strictest current time. Freed narratives that can exceed these frames, often devised based on oppositions, dichotomies. In this sense, the Art Lounge, Aurora Vigil-Escalera and Víctor Lope Arte Contemporáneo galleries will exhibit a very interesting set of works, in which the abstract and figurative languages appear within balanced and very varied selections.

Know the proposals that BAT Alberto Cornejo, Moret Art, Zielinsky and Jorge Alcolea Galleries will show at the fair.

COLLECTING VIDEO ART: A PERSONAL UTOPIA
Art Madrid'19 focuses its activities program on a discipline that arouses both fascination and curiosity: video art. Although the adjective "innovator" does not sit well with a path of evolution and creative growth of something more than half a century, the truth is that this artistic branch still poses numerous challenges for art lovers, and is far from being something usual and common in the main exhibition circuits.

THE SEDUCTION OF MYSTERY
The seduction of the unknown, hidden and mysterious, is one of those things that is hard to describe. The mystery can be ineffable, because it is not easy to express it with words and, perhaps due to this verbal difficulty, it is more possible to express it through other languages, such as the language of images, the shapes of visual arts. Miquel Alzueta, Robert Drees, Fucking Art, Alba Cabrera and MH Art Galleries.
