ARCOlisboa offers art lovers a first-hand look at Portugal’s vibrant art scene in dialogue with contemporary art from around the globe. Held in the Cordoaria Nacional—a stunning 18th-century industrial building on the banks of the Tagus River in Lisbon’s historic Belém district—ARCOlisboa 2019 hosted nearly 80 galleries and featured a variety of special sections, including a selection of galleries from Africa and a section dedicated to contemporary art publishing.
As in past editions, the central part of ARCOlisboa 2019 was organized into three areas: Main Section, Opening and Projects. The Main Section of ARCOlisboa 2019 included 50 galleries from Portugal and 15 other countries: among galleries participating for the first time in the Main Section is Vera Munro and Georg Kargl, while returning galleries include Krinzinger, Greengrassi, Pietro Sparta and Vermelho.
Afriart Gallery presented works by Sanaa Gateja, JB Sekubulwa and Stacey Gillian Abe.
