The second edition of ART MARBELLA, the international art fair, will have several new features, consolidating its presence in the European artistic scene. The addition of important Spanish galleries with strong international presence like Carles Taché (Barcelona), Moisés Pérez de Albéniz (Madrid), Galería Senda (Barcelona), Xavier Fiol and Horrach Moya (Palma de Mallorca), and Rafael Ortiz (Sevilla), adds to the strength of last year’s participants CarrerasMugica (Bilbao), Max Estrella (Madrid), Espacio Mínimo (Madrid), Bacelos (Madrid), Filomena Soares (Lisbon) y F2 Galería (Madrid), among others. Other notables include Saida Art Contemporain of Morocco offering the best contemporary art form that country, Lin & Lin Gallery, one of the most important galleries from Taiwan, with a solo project by José María Cano, and Baro Galería, one of the top Latin American galleries.


Alejandro Zaia, director of the fair, commented: “the success of the inaugural edition, in a previously unexplored market, has attracted more top quality galleries to Art Marbella. The final list represents a selection of 47 recognised galleries from Spain, Brazil, Portugal, USA, France, Italy, Argentina, Colombia, Switzerland, Taiwan, Morocco and Austria. Many of them with long track records and consistent participation in fairs like Miami Art Basel, Frieze or ARCO”.



The current edition of the fair will display works by recognised Spanish artists like Miki Leal, Ángela de la Cruz, Rafael Canogar, Miquel Barceló, Jorge de Oteiza and Juan Gris, alongside international names such as Shirin Neshat, Eugene J. Martin, Liliana Porter and Peter Zimmermann, among a large number of important artists.

Another novelty is the collaboration with Fundación Museo del Grabado Español Contemporáneo (Foundation of the Museum of Contemporary Spanish Engraving) to organize the exhibit Libro de bolsillo (Pocket book) at Centro Cultural Cortijo Miraflores of Marbella, that will display works by 18 artists from the emerging artistic scene of Malaga.


ART MARBELLA will once again take place at the Palacio de Ferias y Congresos of Marbella between July 29 and August 3, 2016.  The show will extend to six days, maintaining the same hours of 18:00 to 22:30, except for the last day when it will open between 12:00 and 22:30.
