Mexico: three fairs and art scene at the peak of rebirth

6 - 10 February 2019

Mexico City takes pride in a unique art scene. In here, the winter is hard-to-see, while the artists pay taxes with their works. Let go of annoying cliché about the birthplace of chocolate and chili pepper. Instead, we will experience a spicy flavor of the country, where Indian pyramids sit side by side with magnificent Catholic cathedrals.

We will learn a lot about the art of the 20th century and such prominent artists as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. We will also face a number of fascinating discoveries and new acquaintances, including artists whose work draws the attention of collectors from around the world.

The tour with Cosmoscow Art Collectors Club will be focused on three distinctive Mexican art fairs:

  • Zona Maco that brings together leading galleries and major players of the world art scene.
  • Material Art Fair to be held in the renovated building of the early 20th-century sports arena a few steps from the famous Monument to the Revolution.
  • Salón Acme working directly with artists who are not yet represented by galleries. Their work reflects an excessive and expressive nature of modern Mexico City's life.

We will visit the leading art spaces of the Mexican capital.

The latter will include Kurimanzutto, the major contemporary art gallery in Mexico that once was the pioneer behind the revival of the country's artistic life.

We cannot overlook the JUMEX Museum designed by the famous British architect David Chipperfield. Its display includes nearly two thousand works by such celebrities of the world's art scene as Jeff Koons.

We will also visit Casa Luis Barragán, one of the best examples of modern architecture named after the most influential Mexican architect of the 20th century.

So far, Mexico is a country Russian collectors rarely visit, allow us to become pioneers of the local art scene. Contemporary Mexican art is a result of a strong correlation between ancient culture and original expression, in which a vibrant and rich life pulsates. At the beginning of the 21st century, the country is experiencing a real renaissance of contemporary art.
