The pandemic has not made it easy. Just look at this year’s data from Arco, the largest contemporary art fair in Spain: the number of galleries has plummeted, 130 compared to 209 in the previous edition. The onset of the pandemic was a blockage for many creators, but over time, the different actors in the art market have shown resistance, originality and adaptability. The director of Arco, Maribel López, and the artists Victoria Civera and Secundino Hernández, talk about all this in this meeting of EL PAÍS. Among his observations, one stands out: online sales and distribution are here to stay.
