In 2016 Julius Baer took part in the 35th edition of ARCOmadrid, the leading international art fair of contemporary art in Spain, as main sponsor of the 35th Anniversary section. ARCOmadrid’s 35th Anniversary celebrated the Fair’s past and future with a selection of galleries curated by María and Lorena de Corral, Catalina Lozano, and Aaron Moulton.
35 galleries in total, from a number of different countries, were invited to participate in the section “Imagining other futures”, which showcased projects by two artists per stand.
A dialogue between artists often belonging to different generations was established. Artists discussed their past history with ARCOmadrid and how they imagine their future. This section served as a forum on the last 35 years of international contemporary art and showcased a projection on the up-and-coming art for the next decades.
