SUPERSONIC talked with Javier Diaz-Guardiola to overview the art scene in the year that ARCO MADRID celebrates its fortieth anniversary.
Javier Diaz-Guardiola graduated in Journalism from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and it was after graduation that art would win a space in his heart.
First, by writing articles about art and culture for several newspapers, and then by producing critical reviews about the art world in Madrid. From there to curation was a hop having curated quite a few exhibitions, including the one happening now at Spacio UltraVioleta in Madrid, "Dar Guesto al Cuerpo". Currently, Javier Diaz-Guardiola coordinates the art, architecture, and design sections at the ABC Newspaper and is the editor-in-chief of the official magazine of ARCO MADRID - the Spanish International Contemporary Art Fair.
