ARCOmadrid 2018: Future Section - Artists, Artworks and Galleries

ARCOmadrid 2018: Future Section
21 - 25 February 2018

The line of research pursued at ARCOmadrid 2018 is not a guest country or region, but a concept: The Future. This section presents a selection of 20 galleries, in addition to a programme of events curated by Chus Martínez, Rosa Lleó and Elise Lammer.

Under the heading: What is going to happen is not "the future", but what we are going to do, the space was designed by Andrés Jaque and conceived as an open presentation of the different works by the selected artists. Thus, it will also seek to surprise through the aesthetics and conceptual qualities of how it is staged, addressing the complexity of the artistic minds represented.

Around twenty artists will be present in this space, reflecting a diversity in both the generations and the artistic language set to propose the idea of the future as a form of training to get closer to the mindset of the artists and their issues and challenges. The Future conceived as an effort, an ongoing exercise of acknowledgement, producing space, imagining difference and avoiding the platitude of standard views of life.

In addition to the exhibition space dedicated to this concept in the Fair, the curators will also direct the Seminar Caressing the future.  A tribute to the great Bola de Cristal, a day of theory organised into two sessions: a morning session with artists and professionals, and an afternoon session which will begin with an intervention by Timothy Morton. They will also benefit from the participation of international curators, critics, philosophers and scientists who will raise awareness of relevant research to move closer to the future, in a setting created by the artist, Álvaro Urbano.

The city of Madrid will also host initiatives, events and activities revolving around The Future, extending ARCOmadrid 2018’s focus on innovation and reflection to some of the city’s other cultural areas and scenarios. Institutions such as CentroCentro, CA2M, Museo Thyssen and MNCARS, among others, join this analysis with specific projects to coincide with ARCOmadrid.

What is going to happen is not "the future", but what we are going to do.

The ARCOmadrid 2018 edition will not have a guest country, but rather a concept as a guest: the future. A notion that everyone is talking about, yet one that’s hard to elaborate on as it is not, as the Borges quote I’ve used for the title claims, a reference to what has yet to happen, but rather our ability to intervene in it. To create a space for the future within an encounter like ARCOmadrid is doubly complex.

It could, in this context, be misinterpreted as an exercise of prospection in the future of the art market rather than the future of our actions and responsibilities to art and culture. But to address the nature of artistic, institutional, media and educational language when speaking of the future as if it were a miracle about to happen within an edition of ARCOmadrid may turn out to be as productive as it is strange, precisely because of the complex and intangible nature of this event within the history of our relationship with contemporary art and its worlds. By choosing to speak of future without futurology implies a tentative endeavour to address what currently feeds art and society: economy, nature, technology, gender, coexistence, privatisation, education, protection of the cultural sphere, autonomy and form of the institutions, interaction between the rural context and its development with urban life… To speak of it at ARCOmadrid is certainly a challenge, but a challenge that makes sense as since its beginnings, and for many professionals, it has provided a forum for meeting and debate.

Accompanied by two knowledgeable professionals about the possibilities and problems faced by artists and professionals of the public and private sectors, Elise Lammer and Rosa Lleó, our idea is to garner a space that allows us to imagine, produce and propose a vision of the complexity that awaits us.
