Catalina D’Anglade ART is a ground-breaking ideas lab that draws its inspiration from art and design.
At its helm is Catalina D’Anglade, who hails from Madrid and trained in the international arena. She views cultural creation as a source of social wealth, and a way of raising interest in art and spreading knowledge.
She is a designer, as well as a passionate art collector, and after heading one of the country’s most important sculpture biennials, she ventured forth to create her own Universe in 2015.
Catalina D’Anglade’s first collaboration with the world of art included the infinite talent of the artist called Rafa Macarrón.
The admiration that she always felt for this painter since he started out in the world of art is behind this collection of craftsmanship that brings us limited and numbered editions of the carpet entitled “FAMILY”, where the universes of these two creators merge together.
It was presented and put on display in the ARCOLunch hall, during the 2017 ARCOmadrid Contemporary Art Fair.
In 2017 Catalina D’Anglade Art established the Catalina D’Anglade ARCOmadrid Award, with a view to attracting and collaborating with artists who felt the urge to conceive their art outside of their usual creative settings, and to harness their creativity in design related fields, and integrate it into everyday life.
The award consists of two stages. In the first stage, the award is given and the winning piece is acquired; and in the second, the artist brings to life an unpublished project where art and design share the same space.
In 2017, the first Catalina D’Anglade ARCOmadrid Award was granted to the designer Fernanda Fragateiro who used it to come up with a new design object brought to life in a stunning stainless steel bookcase.
The second Catalina D’Anglade ARCOmadrid Award was in 2018 and was granted to Secundino Hernández, with the creation of a set of 24 wonderful exclusive lamps.
In 2019, Luis Gordillo was granted the third Catalina D’Anglade ARCOmadrid Award. His proposal was a set of 12 exclusive tiles based on his unpublished drawings.
In 2020, the fourth Catalina D’Anglade ARCOmadrid Award was granted to Daniel Steegmann and his proposal will be revealed throughout 2021.
