The Germany-based private company Gebrüder Heineman and the German distributor of Nanos S.

The artworks acquired by these companies will travel to Germany and form part of their respective private collections.




The application to RAF5 is now open

ROOM ART FAIR, the art fair for emerging art, will hold its fifth edition during Madrid Art Week, on 26, 27 and 28 February 2016.

With fees for participation starting at €750 and accommodation for the four days, RAF invites art galleries, hybrid and alternative spaces, and artist platforms and collectives to form part of the art week circuit.

In its 5th anniversary, ROOM ART FAIR will play a key role in exposing a new generation of talent to the collectors and art lovers visiting Madrid for the events taking place in the city during those days. Madrid Art Week attracts art lovers from all over the world, offering a full programme of art events including Spain’s world famous contemporary art fair, ARCO.

In 2016, ROOM ART FAIR, the most alternative fair on the Madrid circuit, will again make use of unconventional spaces to display the work of emerging artists and independent curators. The exhibition venue will be the four-star boutique hotel Petit Palace Santa Bárbara, on plaza Santa Bárbara in the city-centre neighbourhood of Chueca. In addition to the hotel rooms, RAF will also make use of two 45m2 salons, where its programme of activities will take place.
