Peru will be the guest of honor in the 2019 version of ARCOmadrid, an international contemporary art fair organized by IFEMA (Feria de Madrid), one of the five most important trade fair institutions in Europe and the first in Spain.
This “will help to boost the local art market,” said Culture Minister Alejandro Neyra after the announcement of the Peruvian participation.
The involvement in ARCOmadrid will be coordinated by the Promotion of Peru for Exports and Tourism, Promperú, alongside the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Peru to help the country “position itself in the international public sphere”, wrote Radio Nacional.
Es Madrid explained also that Sharon Lerner will be in charge of selecting the Peruvian art to be displayed, which will include a varied sample of the contemporary production of Peru.
