Madrid’s annual International Contemporary Art Fair is one of the biggest cultural events of the year. Located within the enormous IFEMA convention center, ARCO spans two giant halls, so plan to spend an entire day (or two) enjoying the many installations created by artists from around the world. Highlights of this year’s exhibition include graphic art from Sabrina Amrani on surfaces such as leather and wood, and human interest photography from Cinnnamon Gallery.
