Focus on GP2017 | Participating galleries
Contemporary Art Galleries is an online magazine launched in September 2015 by Silvia Anna Barrilà and Jana Hyner, devoted to collecting interviews with international gallerists of contemporary art. In 2016 Contemporary Art Galleries started a media partnership with Granpalazzo and dedicated a special focus on the galleries participating in the 2016 and 2017 editions of the fair.
Interview with Matteo Consonni, co-founder of the gallery Madragoa in Lisbon
Lisbon is attracting more and more attention for its art and creative scene. Last year the Spanish art fair Arco opened a Portuguese branch here, which will be celebrating its second edition in a couple of weeks, and in October 2016 the Edp Foundation inaugurated its new museum, the Maat. The terrain is also fertile for new galleries opening their headquarters here. One is Madragoa, an initiative by Portuguese Gonçalo Jesus and Italian Matteo Consonni, who told us his story.
