ARCOlisboa 2017 will once again become the Portuguese capital’s major art and social event from 18 to 21 May. With quality contents as its main priority, the Cordoaria Nacional will house 58 galleries. The General Programme will be made up of 50 galleries selected by the Organising Committee, of which half are foreign. The new Opening section will include the participation of 8 national and international galleries under seven years old, selected by Joćo Laia.
The scope of ARCOlisboa will range from the emerging artists represented in Opening such as Renato Leotta or Karlos Gil to creators of international repute such as Erwin Wurm, José Pedro Croft, Joćo Louro, Sergio Vega, Nathaniel Mellors and Carlos Garaicoa, alongside more classic pieces by the contemporary masters, including Picasso and Vieira da Silva.
