This week is Zona Maco in Mexico City, the biggest contemporary art fair in the country. This year’s fair will include more than 90 galleries from around the world, representing more than 900 artists in over 10,000 square meters of exhibition space. The editors of The Art News Paper wrote “México’s contemporary art fair Zona Maco hits its stride. Organisers aim to ecourage new collectors in Mexico and let the fair grow with the local art market.”
Among all the satellite projects i really like the collaboration between American Apparel visual merchandisers of Mexico City, with a young local gallerist, Gerardo Contreras at Preteen Gallery, and one of his artists, Radams “Juni” Figueroa on a conceptual display called Total Tropical Hallucination. After the exhibitions Paraiso at Ldt Los Angeles, and Mayami son Machin at Gallery Diet, the new installation of the Mexican artist is featuring AA bags, a wide set of plants, and trippy green and fuxia T5, in a quite big window space.
Actually La Roma creative team represented by Ana Paula Mendieta is bringing a lot of creativity in town. Last week, before the collaboration with Preteen Gallery, an iconic display in Mexican style has been installed, attracting so many visitors in the area.
