Under the new director of the art fair, Carlos Urroz, ARCO in Madrid has become smaller, some say more focused. The number of galleries and side projects has been reduced. In addition to the general programme, the fair features ARCO 40 (galleries presenting a maximum of 3 artists), and curated programmes: Focus Russia, a selection of Russian contemporary art galleries and collectors curated by Daria Pyrkina; Solo Projects, one-person projects selected by a team of international curators; and Opening, a selection of European galleries under eight years old, curated by Maribel López. This video provides some impressions from the first of the professional days. An interview with Carlos Urroz, the new director of ARCO, and more coverage of ARCO 2011 is coming soon.
