In 1978 Rosina realised the need to encourage international trade in Spain’s capital Madrid.
Through conversations with government officials, city council and in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce, Rosina launched IFEMA, and with it, its first ever official trade fair in Madrid: Sicur.
Taking place in the Canary Islands, Spain, Rosina created the Art Biennial, showcasing contemporary and emerging artists from over 20 countries.
Prior to founding YGBART, Lucía was chief exhibition coordinator at the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid. Over sixteen years, Lucía developed immense expertise in the art of coordinating exhibitions, both at the museum and around the world. Lucía was chief liaison officer for touring exhibitions, building a solid understanding of the international art scene.
In 2016, Fernando Cubillo joins YGBART bringing well over twenty years of experience in international client relations. Fernando will oversee international operations and joins YGBART as Coordinator of International Projects.
