AS AN EPI­CEN­TRE FOR ART

ME Madrid ho­tel

M Style - - Art -

Dur­ing the fair, the avant-garde ME Madrid ho­tel, in the heart of the Span­ish cap­i­tal, be­came the place to see and be seen. This unique space pro­vided a fun and invit­ing post-fair at­mos­phere, with an in­ter­est­ing and con­tem­po­rary cul­tural pro­gramme in line with ARCO 2018. Among the nu­mer­ous events were the suc­cess and good vibes ex­pe­ri­enced dur­ing the Knowl­edge Ses­sion, in which guests of the fair (mu­seum di­rec­tors, art crit­ics, celebri­ties, etc.)

had the op­por­tu­nity to meet and chat in the set­ting of the ME ho­tel, which hosted artists, in­clud­ing those from Ur­van­ity Art, through­out the fair. An­other project that in­spired much dis­cus­sion was Now you see me, in which the trendi­est cre­ators cus­tomised a ho­tel room. An­other Knowl­edge Ses­sion, or­gan­ised in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Ur­van­ity Art, delved into the role of ‘Women in the cul­tural in­dus­try beyond the fem­i­nist clichés’, by ad­dress­ing a cur­rent yet un­com­mon theme. The ses­sion was led by three in­flu­en­tial women of the Span­ish cul­tural scene (Belén Polanco, Con­suelo Durán and Anna Taratiel). In ad­di­tion, dur­ing the month fol­low­ing the fair, ten artists af­fil­i­ated with ARCO (from Nave Oporto) ex­hib­ited ten pieces through­out the ho­tel. This ex­hi­bi­tion’s open­ing party, which took place at RA­DIO ME Madrid, was at­tended by well-known faces of ur­ban art: the artists them­selves, sur­rounded by

good mu­sic, live per­for­mances and in­ter­na­tional press spe­cial­is­ing in art, in­clud­ing NEO2 mag­a­zine.

Some of the var­i­ous events hosted by the ME Madrid Reina Vic­to­ria ho­tel be­fore, dur­ing and after the In­ter­na­tional Con­tem­po­rary Ar t Fair (ARCO).
