Fortunately a new online tool now makes it simple for both artists and collectors to stay abreast of the latest exhibitions and fairs - especially for those of us in countries like Spain where information can vary from sketchy to non-existent.
I hadn't heard about Artsy.net until the folks there reached out to me to tell me about their new ARCOmadrid site, which launched last week with an exclusive preview of the 2015 edition of Spain's prestigious annual international art fair.
Official Online Partner of ARCOmadrid
As the official online partner of ARCOmadrid, Artsy's coverage includes over 1,000 artworks from ARCOmadrid exhibitors with information about the artists and editorial content surrounding the fair.
However, Artsy - whose mission is to 'make all the world’s art accessible to anyone with an Internet connection' - offer a whole lot more than information about ARCOmadrid.
