A cutting-edge event
That distant first edition of ARCO, that took place from the 10th to the 17th of February 1982, is much more than just a date. This occurrence helped to place Spain back at the forefront of the artistic inventions of the moment, right after the cultural blackout the country went through.
In that occasion, apart from the work of the newest artists, you could also find on display the artwork of more recent classics like Miró or Picasso.
