The MACBA Foundation organizes every year an exclusive trip for their collaborators the occasion of the ARCOmadrid Contemporary Art Fair, with a programme that includes the visit to the fair and exhibitions to the most outstanding of the moment in the city.

This year, ARCOmadrid has held its 36th edition from February 22th to 26 th, bringing together a total of 200 galleries of which 164 have integrated the General Programme, adding to them the curated sections "Argentina ARCO Platform", with a selection of 12 galleries; "Dialogues", with 11 and "Opening", with 17.

The fair has consolidated its Latin American projection with the presence of Argentina as guest country, with a programme set up by the curator Sonia Becce, as well as with other exhibitions that have celebrated collecting in Latin America such as the Isabel and Agustín Coppel Collection, at the Foundation Banco Santander, where we organized a guided tour this year.

We also has the pleasure to visit the exhibition Territories and fictions. Thinking a New Way of the World at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, guided by Lola Hinojosa, curator of the exhibition; and a private visit to the studio of the artistic group Los Carpinteros, founded in Havana.

The trip concluded with a dinner in the Restaurant Hotel AC Santo Mauro, in a reserved space for the collaborators of the MACBA Foundation, in which Ainhoa Grandes and Ferran Barenblit participated.
