The MACBA Foundation organized last 27th and 28th February the annual trip to ARCOmadrid fair. First of all, it included a guided visit to the fair, which this year has celebrated its 38th edition with the participation of 203 galleries and Peru as the guest country. After the visit, Audemars Piguet offered a cocktail to our collaborators.

The trip also counted on visits to several remarkable exhibitions held in the capital, such as París pese a todo. Artistas extranjeros 1944-1968 at the Reina Sofía Museum, a display curated by Serge Guilbaut, where we could look at the work by foreign artists who worked in Paris after the World War II. No habrá nunca una Puerta. Estás adentro at Santander Art Gallery offered us a journey to international contemporary art through a selection of pieces of the Teixeira de Freitas collection.

Finally, we visited the exhibition Balthus at Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, where we contemplated the mysterious works by the Polish French artist, which show really different influences ranging from Piero della Francesca to Courbet. To conclude our trip, we visited Glenda León’ studio, with the presence of the artist, the president of the Foundation Ainhoa Grandes and several personalities from the art collecting world.
