About Arcomadrid, Spain
Gallery managers, art collectors and professionals worldwide will meet in Madrid on February 17-21 for ARCOmadrid_ 2010, International Contemporary Art Fair. Due to its growing influence, the event is placed among the top platforms of the world artistic market and turns Madrid into the Mecca of contemporary plastic arts.
As the greatest highlight of the upcoming Fair is the participation as guest of honor of the US city of Los Angeles, one of main scenarios of present-day artistic trends. With his PANORAMA program, ARCOmadrid bids for a city rather than for a country as it had done over the past few decades and L.A. has been selected for its dynamism and creative diversity which have won it a space among the leaders of the world art market. This presentation marks the beginning of a series of Fairs that will bring to Madrid contemporary plastic arts scenes not only through country representations but also through the presence of the most important regions or cities as part of a whole world that grows more diverse and plural beyond national borders.
Thus, through a selection of 17 galleries, organized by Kris Kuramitsu and Christopher Miles, the public will be offered an approach in PANORAMA: Los Ángeles to a sample of creators and halls showing “a great range of works of art in terms of technique, genre and trend,” the commissioners assured.

Works produed by “artists from different generations, backgrounds and notoriety levels” in a selection that seeks, above all, "vitality in all of its forms, while trying to be as representative as possible of the panorama of a city,” even when Los Angeles “is constantly surprising and of which one can not give a totalizing point of view,” according to Kuramitsu and Miles.

L.A., a city for art
“As a city for art, Los Angeles became and continues to be the great center for artistic production, distribution and discourse in a moment when all centers are loosing control and lack a 'school' or ruling movement,” the experts responsible for the exhibition explained. Those artistic trends that used to define cities in other times, “are replaced here by such a plurality and promiscuous activities that makes it difficult to create a monolithic identity.”
Actually, just like ARCOmadrid_ 2010 will show, “even though the history of L.A.’s artistic is undoubtedly shorter than that of many other cities, it is quite denser and more complex as it reflexes not only an artistic overview that reached maturity,- and we are not talking only about its artists but also about its schools, museums, alternative spaces, sponsors and galleries-  in a transition era between the end of the modern period and post-modernity, determined by the diversity and plurality itself of artistic practices resulting from great changes that took place within arts, the art academy and society as a whole.”
It can be very specially stated that this 21st- century metropolis “enjoys a highly wealthy multigenerational artistic culture, mostly as a result of its influential position –maintained for decades–, its network of private art academies and  schools, and art departments in both private and public universities," as stated by Panorama: Los Angeles’s commissioners.
