ZONAMACO’s 14th Edition This Week in Mexico City

By Eliza Jordan

February 9, 2017

Developed in 2002 by Zélika Garcia, ZONAMACO México Arte Contemporáneo is a must-attend fair on any art lovers’ calendar, taking place this week in Centro Citibanamex, Mexico City.

Yesterday, ZONAMACO kicked off its 14th edition with over 120 international galleries and works from over 1,500 artists. The art fair is made up of a committee of special constituents— Stefania Bortolami (Bortolami, New York), Ben Loveless (Galerie Nordenhake, Stockholm/Berlin), Patricia Ortiz Monasterio (Galería OMR, Mexico City) and Fernando Mesta (House of Gaga, Mexico City)—and is known to be one of Latin America’s epicenters for collecting. With its main section focused on leading galleries with high quality paintings, graphics, photographs, videos, sculptures, and new media, ZONAMACO is continuing to make a name for itself on the global scene.

Attendees can enjoy “New Proposals”—a representation of young and emerging artists under 36-years-old, presented by 22 international galleries, and curated by Guadalajara-born curator Humberto Moro. For the first time, the fair is welcoming an exhibition space entitled “SAMPLE,” which is also curated by Moro, and some of the projects participating in “New Proposals” will be seen there, as well.

Fairgoers will also see “ZONAMACO Sur,” curated by João Mourão and Luis Silva—the co-directors of Kunsthalle Lissabon, Lisbon. Now in its ninth edition, this section will propose Case study #3: The F.R. David Complex, which is set to explore the emotional state that one enters when at a loss for words due to an overdevelopment of sensory or artistic abilities.

This week attendees will also get a taste of Modern works at the fifth edition of “Modern Art,” full of historical pieces with a plethora of emblematic works made during the first half of the 20th century.

It’s a busy week in Mexico, so get out there, enjoy some sun, and have some fun exploring the fair!
