About the fair

Drawing Room is a curated exhibition. Each year the fair shows the work of new artists. The selection of artistic projects that make up the third edition follows two lines of work:

Drawing practice in emerging artists, related to the importance of the processes of ideation of the work of art, privileged against the execution and the final object. Contemporary sensibility lives a vigorous reconnection with the drawing in which there is no conflict about his alleged anachronism. This new assessment has to do with the immediacy, nudity, and unfinished, personal artistic expression.

Drawing as a field of reflection in mid-career artists. The drawing is the place where the world comes together memory, personal experience and individual thought. Often a preparatory action, a tool that does not usually show, the drawings of great artists convey their conception of art and creating in a particularly revealing way.


One of the missions of Drawing Room is the revision of different current drawing practices based on several cultural traditions. Thus, in its first edition, Drawing Room showcased examples of Chinese artists formed in calligraphic and landscape Chinese painting, whereas in 2017 the focus shifted towards the Italian classical heritage through the works of a group of artists born near the year 1980.



After two successful callings, the third edition of Drawing Room Madrid changes its location, increasing the number of galleries and artists and expanding its audience. It will take place from Wednesday 21st to Sunday 25th of February 2018 in the magnificent space of  the Ball Room of the Círculo de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Circle), happening to meet the most exciting week of contemporary art in the Spanish capital.


For five days, collectors, professionals and amateurs from the art world are invited to discover the contemporary artistic scene through the projects of a hundred national and international artists, invited by a curatorial committee formed by museum directors, curators and gallerists.

Drawing Room Madrid is the only Spanish specialized fair that allows the public to discover the richness of the everlasting practice of contemporary drawing. Here, the new generation of artists who have made drawing their privileged medium meets with the undeniable devotion for drawing of the great masters.
