After the success of last year’s edition, ARCOmadrid 2013’s Solo Projects programme will, for the third year running, showcase Latin American artists.
The great attention received by this section in 2012 led to an important presence in the media, sales, and future projects for artists and galleries, and also brought recognition to many artists in the form of awards and purchases by institutions: the Chilean artist Voluspa Jarpa, shown by Isabel Aninat gallery, received the Illy Sustain Art Prize for her work Minimal Secret; and Mexico’s Marcela Armas, shown by Arróniz gallery, won the ARCOmadrid/Beep electronic art award for her work Máquina Stella. Collectors, institutions, and foundations also acquired works presented in this programme, including Fundación ARCO, with purchases including a notable work by Adriana Bustos, shown by Argentine Ignacio Liprandi gallery.
