Art Week 2018 @ CDMX

by | Feb 21, 2018

Once again and for the 15th time, Zona Maco took place in Mexico City, with the most representative selection of the international art world and proves to why it stands as the most important art fair in Latin America, through over 130 international galleries from 27 countries. From America to Europe and Asia, the exhibitors presented works ranging from modern pieces to new works by both established and emerging artists, as well as furniture and design objects.

Zona Maco has become Mexico’s leading platform for art and design with a significant international presence, creating a meeting point for collectors, art world professionals and general audiences.

Curator Humberto Moro, was in charge of the New Proposals section, which represents an emerging generation and, at the same time, stimulates the institutional behavior of the galleries to create work opportunities for young artists. As a compliment to New Proposals, and for the second consecutive year, the exhibition space titled Sample shows projects by non-established artists, in collaboration with the galleries and alternative spaces participating in this section.

Material Art Fair has revitalised Mexico City’s most important week for contemporary art since it’s debut 4 years ago. In many ways, Material Art Fair has come to symbolize its city’s vibrant and youthful cultural scene. The fair’s experience has made it a required visit for collectors, curators, artists, and general public alike. It took place in an Art-Deco-era sporting arena constructed in 1929, Frontón México. The fair presented 78 galleries from 18 countries and 33 cities, all withing a multi-level temporary structure designed by APRDELESP, Mexico City – based architects, in collaboration with Anpasa.

Some of the main exhibitors include Mexican galleries like LABOR, joségarcia,mx, Arredondo / Arozarena, Marso, Lodos, Agustina Ferryra and BWSMX as well as notable international galleries like Supportico Lopez, François Ghebaly Gallery, Sultana, Andréhn-Shiptjenko, Callicoon Fine Arts and Aoyama Meguro.

Part of their mission was to give visibility to a new generation of independent spaces that otherwise might not have had the opportunity.
