Looking back, eighteen years is a vast and fleeting period. A time in which Art Madrid has been building its path as a reference event for the visual arts and the market in Spain and Europe. The appointment every February, in Casa de Campo or Palacio de Cristal de Cibeles, has been adding to its history, a repertoire of galleries and artists that during these years have evolved along with the event.

Pause: A pandemic, uncertainty, and the reunion with the "unmentionable party" of art have also been part of the life of the fair.

Art Madrid has demonstrated its commitment to contemporary art, its managers, and its leading makers in each edition. That is why every year, hand in hand with its advisory committee, the quality of the exhibition proposals and the desire for the fair to become a commitment to the future, speaks of the rigor in the selection of galleries and the quality of the works. That can be appreciated at the appointment.

In 2023 Art Madrid comes of age. A stadium in which it begins to be aware of the impact produced by his presence in Madrid's art week. And a moment to reflect on the path that remains to be traveled. Its mission: to continue being a disruptive and daring scene. Its bet: is to strengthen its role as a living showcase for contemporary art produced inside and outside the peninsula.

In this journey that reaches its eighteenth edition, thirty-six galleries will attend the event to show the recent works of the more than one hundred and sixty artists who share space in the glass gallery. It is worth noting the presence of manifestations, such as painting, sculpture, photography, and drawing, always protagonists in the projects with which the galleries endorse their trajectory and that of the creators they represent. However, the performance and the installation will have a notable presence within the Curating Program, which for the third time, comes from the curator and art critic Natalia Alonso Arduengo. And that focuses on Identity as a category of analysis and starting point for questioning and aesthetic production. The narrative of this edition will also be accompanied by the Interview Program directed by the theoretician and curator Alfonso de la Torre, an erudite window that opens to the public to promote an approach to the eight most outstanding artists of ArtMadrid'23.

The return to the eighteenth sun of our house is a reason to celebrate. And we will do it again with the Acquisition Awards, the Collectors Program, and the consistently accurate advice from our Art Advisor Ana Suárez Gisbert. Thus, we invite collectors and the general public to look with the eyes of desire at the works the galleries will display in their spaces—an unrepeatable opportunity to enter the deep world of collecting.

This year's contemporary art event returns renewed, betting on new gallery models, inaugurating reception platforms so that young voices find their place in the current scenario, and interested in bringing new audiences closer to the project. Aware of the role that Art Madrid plays as an event that is due to the galleries and deals with finding a market niche for young and mid-term creators, we insist on the need to build unprejudiced visibility spaces and call attention to the urgency to professionalize artistic practices within the national and international circuit. It seems like a great responsibility. It is. And to bring Art Madrid's commitment to fruition, we have always surrounded ourselves with professionals and institutions that have accompanied us on this journey. They have all been building the itinerary today as a preamble to give thanks and celebrate our coming of age: An "unmentionable party" that has only just begun.

The 20th edition of Art Madrid will take place from 5 to 9 March 2025 in the Galería de Cristal del Palacio de Cibeles. This privileged location, good communications and the quality of the project have always been guarantees of success for an event that reaches 20,000 visitors in each edition.

Art Madrid has been held during the capital's Art Week for the last twenty years, consolidating itself as an interdisciplinary fair of new artistic trends, in which nearly 40 national and international galleries participate, working with painting, sculpture, graphics, photography, installation and digital art of recent production.
