ARCOMadrid, one of the most important international fairs in the art world, has become the center of attention for several days. This year, more than 27,000 professionals have visited the fair at which the country of Colombia was the guest of honor. NH Hotel Group was present at ARCOMadrid thanks to our General Director BU Spain, Hugo Rovira, who presented the first NH Collection Contemporary Art Prize to José Dávila for his work Untitled 2014. The following is part of Hugo Rovira´s presentation: 

“This prize makes up part of NH Hotel’s strong commitment to culture and to art as a vehicle for change and making the difference. It is a project of the company’s responsible artistic patronage which commits to the installment of conceptual and minimalistic art pieces in NH Collection Hotels, our Premium Brand which is present in Europe and Latin America. In this way, the art contributes directly to the extraordinary client experience in these hotels”.
In the following video we will provide a brief summary of ARCOMardrid and show you our Guest Relations space in the stand of our Premium NH Collection brand where the prize-winning piece was displayed. Pay attention! We’re sure you’ll love this piece!



The judges panel, made up of prestigious collectors of contemporary art, selected José Dávila’s work: Untitled 2014. The Mexican artist has participated in individual and group exhibitions since 1996. His works have been displayed in places such as the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid, the Museum of Modern Art in Sâo Paulo and the Bass Museum of Art in Miami.  In Untitled 2014, you can appreciate the turning axes around which Dávila develops his work: architecture and geometry. His work explores the relationship between fact and fiction and between space and time. 

This is not our first commitment to art, as we already have works of art in our hotels from renowned artists such as Javier Mariscal, Agustí Puig and Manolo Valdés, among others. Come and discover them! For example, in the case of Untitled 2014, if you didn’t already see it at the fair and you want to enjoy this work by José Dávila you can see it at our NH Collection Eurobuilding Madrid

The next morning, we organized in our NH Collection Eurobuilding in Madrid, a breakfast in honor of the jury and José Dávila, leader and ambassador of visual art in Mexico, to thank them for their cooperation. 

Dávila is a leader in contemporary Latin-American art. As you already know, everyone interprets art, and especially contemporary art, in their own way.  How would you interpret it? Don’t forget to tell us by leaving a comment at the end of this post!
