¿eres the Sibarist?
4 min read



For the second consecutive year, art, architecture, interior design and contemporary design came together in Chueca during the week of 20-26 February.

Five unique spaces in the triangle formed by San Mateo, San Lorenzo and Hortaleza streets opened up to the street to share experiences and creation through ART U READY, a unique event framed in the week in which contemporary art is the undisputed protagonist of Madrid.

Nacho Carbonell took part in the round table at the start of ART U READY.

“Art and design, that thin red line.” A new feature this year is that we are incorporating the figure of collecting into our round table. In homage to Argentina, ARCO’s guest country, we have invited the Argentine collector Juan Sendino.

Artists such as Frederik Takkenberg, Robert Handgrave and Fernanda Fragateiro, dialogues of architecture and interior design, unique private spaces, hidden gardens that cease to be secret for a week. Welcome Design and Hat Bar by Hendrick’s in the courtyard at 5 San Lorenzo St. The Sibarist 1870 at 20 San Lorenzo St. El Invernadero The Sibarist, Heinrich Ehrhardt and Elba Benítez at 11 San Lorenzo St. Travesía Cuatro at 16 San Mateo St. The Foundation Fernando de Castro at 15 San Mateo St. and Domesticoshop at 102 Hortaleza St.
