ARCO is coming in a week. The Wall Street Journal points out the fair will be featuring Los Angeles galleries–17 of them–at the fair:
“There is a lot of curiosity at this fair as Spain’s art scene grows steadily, but without frenzy,” says Victor Gisler of Zurich’s Mai 36 Galerie. Mr. Gisler, a veteran participant, says he will bring along the works of artists receiving increasing attention in southern Europe, including those of technically versatile German photographer Thomas Ruff and American painter Glen Rubsamen with his mysterious, emotional landscapes silhouetting shifting trees and lamp posts.
Some 220 European, American, South American and Asian galleries with work from around 3,000 artists will exhibit at this year’s fair.
