MADRID Although the proposal to bring an art fair to a hotel is not too new, Room Art Fair was the first to create (in 2011) this unconventional experience in the Spanish capital city, thanks to Ana Sanfrutos (from Sevilla) and almeriense Aida Chaves (from Almería). The name clearly says what it is about: exhibitions taking place in rooms where everything, bed and toilet included, becomes a stand for artworks. And few more things are sure: the beauty of the hotel (every year the “place of transit” changes), the quality of the international galleries selected and the talent of their emerging artists. In addition, a rich program of various creative activities, encounters and shows. To follow this and next editions: www.roomartfair.com.
MADRID’S MOST YOUTHFUL ART FAIR
ROOM ART FAIR is a fledgling independent art fair which brings together some of the most recent work of emerging artists from Europe.
RAF was the first art fair in Spain to provide a platform for the work of young artists in unconventional exhibition spaces. Our goal is to remove the barrier between the art market and the general public, promoting art which is both affordable and the fruit of the latest artistic tendencies.
The fair has held four previous editions in different hotels in Madrid, in which each hotel room houses an exhibition of work curated by participating art galleries and independent curators. By day, these hotel rooms are transformed into exhibition spaces, and by night, they serve as accommodation for the exhibitors. This arrangement promotes cohabitation and synergy between different profiles from the art world.
ROOM ART FAIR began in 2011 as a result of the initiative of a young team made of differing profiles, whose objective is to promote contemporary art.
