ARTE MADRID, THE ASSOCIATION OF MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY ART GALLERIES OF MADRID WAS FOUNDED IN 2000. OVER 50 GALLERIES SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE CITY, REPRESENTING MORE THAN 500 ARTISTS, ARE PART OF ARTE MADRID.
The association was born with the aim of promoting the work of galleries as a catalyst for contemporary art in our city. The development of cultural activity in the gallery spaces is proposed with a didactic and informative sense where the promotion of the work of the artists they represent takes full prominence; understanding art as a fundamental element in shaping the individual as such and as a group or society.
The galleries support and complement the artist and promote their work, acting as intermediaries between them and the different agents of the art world, ensuring that thought and aesthetic values are put in contact with society and its context.
The gallery space is open to all types of visitors and the exhibitions can be visited at no cost to the public, being the only private cultural industry free for society.
In turn, the galleries work and dedicate resources to the promotion and visibility of the artist on the international scene, collaborate in the production of exhibitions and encourage the acquisition of works by private, public, national or international collectors.
Since its creation, Arte Madrid mobilizes and connects the public by publishing an art map distributed among the cultural and business sector of the city that includes the programming of all its associates and a selection of institutions and public art spaces, both private and public. The map has become a digital app in order to offer the local, national and international public an even more complete and personalized experience that is directly accessible and adaptable to all their mobile devices.
Since 2009 Arte Madrid organizes Apertura, our Madrid Gallery Weekend, the beginning of the season for Madrid art galleries. The event, which began as a joint inauguration of the galleries of the capital, has become in less than a decade a must on the artistic calendar, both for the public and for collectors, national and international.
