Drawing Room Madrid has closed its seventh edition at the Palacio de las Alhajas after almost 10,000 visitors, recovering its pre-covid attendance. “The high quality of the works exhibited and the suitability of the new location have attracted a very varied public, which has highlighted the pleasure of enjoying the work of emerging artists alongside that of historical masters such as Picabia, Miró or Chagall, but also of other active artists such as Eduardo Stupía or Jorge Martins”, celebrates Mónica Álvarez Careaga, director of Drawing Room. With its seventh edition, Drawing Room Madrid has brought together collectors, curators, museum directors and other drawing enthusiasts, in all its variations and periods, at the centrally located Palacio de las Alhajas.
This edition +Masters has placed contemporary drawing in dialogue with the works of the masters of modernity, exploring the links that connect young artists with their referents. “We didn’t know how this novelty was going to work, but we ended up with the satisfaction of having fulfilled our expectations. Both the public and the galleries have responded positively to the proposal”, declared Alejandro Martínez, artistic director of the fair. “Every year Drawing Room will continue to reinvent itself and pose new challenges, so this experience encourages us to continue exploring new options to show a panorama of drawing that is as complete as possible”.
