ARCOlisboa 2022 will once again turn the Portuguese capital into a meeting place for collectors, gallery owners, artists and professionals from all over the world. In its fifth face-to-face edition, which will be held from May 19 to 22, the National Cordoaria will host the artistic content of more than 70 galleries selected by the Organizing Committee and the curatorial teams of the different sections.
The main axis of the Fair, the General Program, will be made up of national and international galleries whose artistic proposals will ratify their commitment to the quality of the content. In addition, ARCOlisboa will promote its two main curated sections: Africa in Focus, with the participation of galleries from the African continent, and Opening Lisboa, focused on young galleries, with the aim of providing the fair with new content and research.
Likewise, Arts Libris, the space dedicated to publishing contemporary art publications, will return to ARCOlisboa and will be the center of a new space dedicated to art publications.
ARCOlisboa evolves in the contents of the stands towards a more curatorial fair, in which the galleries will propose very defined projects and with a smaller number of artists in each stand. On the other hand, the fair is concentrated in 4 days, in order to reinforce the visibility of the exhibition program of the city’s museums and institutions.
ARCOlisboa once again has the support of the Câmara Municipal de Lisboa and Fundação EDP, as well as the complicity of all the local institutions and the main artistic agents of the city, who make the celebration of the fair possible every year.
