Cocktail Presentation of JUSTMADMIA at the Residence of The Consul General of Spain Cristina Barrios
Miami, Florida November 30th, 2012/The Cuban Art Project- The Consul General of Spain Cristina Barrios Almozar and the President of Just Mad Fairs Corp, Enrique Polanco hosted a cocktail reception for JUSTMADMIA at the residence of the Consul General. The latest work of visual artists Suso 33 and Javier Velazco were shown.
The emerging art fair JUSTMADMIA is a venture of ARTFAIRS, a Spanish privately own corporation specialized in art fairs that has been organizing MADRIDFOTO (a preeminent international art photography show) since 2009 and JUSTMAD (the Madrid-based sister emerging art fair) since 2010, with the aim of turning into a reference platform in promotion, distribution and sales of Spanish, European and Latin American emerging art. JUSTMADMIA is ARTFAIRS first international endeavor and also seeks to foster a broader international scope for galleries, spaces and Spanish artists in one of the World’s busiest commercial hub: Miami.
JUSTMADMIA has a general program of 40 galleries; a Young arts program entitled Naked; a section dedicated to art produced in-residency, Just Produced, in partnership with ArtCenter/South Florida, and a series of parallel events in the areas of architecture, design and gastronomy.
The general fair space, as well as the representation of Mercado de San Miguel has been designed by the architectural group Andrés Jaque y Asociados, whose project Ikea Disobedients was recently acquired for MoMA’s permanent collection.
JUSTMADMIA is directed by Enrique Polanco and his team Rocio Bardin, Arianne Gaazenbeek with Javier Duero as artistic director of the fair. The gallery selection was done by an advisory committee comprised of galleries NoMínimo (Guayaquil), Eva Ruíz (Madrid) and La Caja Blanca (London-Mallorca.)
MERCADO DE SAN MIGUEL
Mercado de San Miguel is a historic and monumental place loaded with literary reminiscences. Located in the heart of “Madrid castizo,” one of the most unique areas of the city and a commercial, cultural and social hub. The market offers an epicurean selection of foods associated with quality, freshness and responds to the increasing interest for gastronomy that has turned it into a true cultural experience. Mercado de San Miguel will present a version of its Culinary Cultural Center during JUSTMADMIA. A meeting point for art lovers, professional, gourmets to have a bite, taste new flavors, share and find culinary information of simply walk around and enjoy.
ARTFAIRS has been sponsored in the organization of JUSTMADMIA by Oficina de Turismo Madrid Visitors & Convention Bureau del Ayuntamiento de Madrid, with the collaboration of Secretaría de Estado de Cultura, Dirección General de Bellas Artes del Gobierno de España and AC/E Acción Cultural Española.
