Does Lisbon Have a Future in the Contemporary Art Market?
Three galleries are opening in the city this week, coinciding with the second edition of the fair ARCOlisboa.
Yesterday, the second edition of ARCOlisboa held its preview at the Cordoaria Nacional, gathering 58 galleries from 13 countries. It’s only been one year since the Portuguese spin-off of Spain’s premier contemporary art fair, ARCOmadrid, staged its debut edition, which raised eyebrows when it was first announced, questioning the viability (or necessity) of a fair in a country not known for its art market prowess. But a mere 12 months have yielded a hugely significant transformation in the local art scene.
The Art week started out with the opening of 3 brand new galleries: Galeria Francisco Fino that opened on Monday night, Madrid’s MaisterraValbuena’s new Lisbon gallery, Tuesday and Monitor from Rome on Wednesday.
