Art Fair Malaga 17 "The worst organizational disaster of art in Europe"

Posted on July 06, 2017 by UNITED PHOTO PRESS MAGAZINE


The gallery owners and artists consider the Malaga Art Fair as the worst organized in the history of art fairs in Europe.

· Lack of communication between the Argentine organizing partner Martin Gallego / Brenda Benitez and the artists
· Stands without previously approved measures and very dirty floors and without a carpet
· Digital art screens only worked at 50%
· Catalogs of the fair nonexistent
· Free admission that harms artists
· The advertising of the fair in the city of Malaga nonexistent
· Theft within the fair with the intervention of the National Police

A "total organizational disaster" is the qualification of the artists of the Malaga Art Fair. This is the final result of the Fair, in spite of the last minute performances of the Argentinean partner Martin Gallego / Brenda Benitez to camouflage many and many bad things, the opinions of the gallerists and artists follow in the same line; Lack of communication between the organization with artists, stands without previously approved measures, cleaning, free tickets, catalogs of the "only imagination", security and acoustics some of the many issues that support their criticism.

A negative balance turned into a whiting that bites its tail: before the protests of the gallery owners and artists, the organization starts again with the same process: it does not communicate, it has no capacity to solve the problems created by itself; Lack of ability to organize events with this dimension, anyone who happened to have been able to rent a stand at the rate of about 800 euros the module. If we do accounts we warn that for the organization the business becomes very very round and point ... "e now the judicial consequences turn" speak the artists "...
