This year the Art Fair will count with 90 galleries of 20 countries (Spain, Italy, Germany, Brazil, England and Mexico among others). Those galleries were chosen from a meticulous selection process made by the Selection Committee who evaluates the galleries for their artists and artwork.
The galleries that form the Committee are: Nara Roesler from Brazil; Krinzinger Gallerie from Austria; Travesía Cuatro from Spain; De la Barra Gallery from England and OMR from México.
This year the fair will feature the special project ZONAMACO® SUR, led by art curator Adriano Pedrosa, which will present 20 projects by emerging artists from the southern hemisphere underrepresented in the Mexican market. Some of the invited artists are: Jorge Macchi de Galerie Peter Kilchmann de Suiza, Nader Ahriman de Krinzinger Galerie de Austria, y Johanna Calle de Galería Casas Riegner de Colombia, among others. Zelik Garcia, director of ZONAMACO® commented "the growth of this project seeks to position and make known the works of various artists within the international market."
The Fair will be open on April 14th at 17:00 hrs. From the beginning the visitors could get involved in the art world that will give them the opportunity to get in touch with different disciplines of contemporary art as painting, sculpture, drawing, photography and video among others. With all this, we can reach the main objective of the Fair.
“Our goal in this Fair is to receive over 25,000 visitors: therefore, we want to invite you to be attentive to the various projects we will be carrying out in order to promote and diffuse ZONAMACO® 10 and the activities we will carry out within this fair”, García pointed out.
During the Fair a whole program of activities will take place including award ceremonies as “Perrier en ZONAMACO®, Artista Emergente Chilango en Z ONAMACO, and el Premio Tequila
Centenario en ZONAMACO®”, all with the purpose of increasing the production, distribution and commercialization of contemporary art.
The Fair is also collaborating with “Aprendiendo a través del arte”, which is a program that developed abilities in children based in the meaning of “Peace and Love”. This program has the objective of promoting values of nonviolence and equality through a number of Workshops. The workshops will be given by very prestigious plastic artists as Jorge Galavuz, Manuel Reyes, Cecilia Mancera y Loela Galaviz.
In addition, there is a dynamic program of social and cultural activities in different venues of Mexico City such as visits to museums and private collections and exclusive dinners, events and parties that will give a chance to surprise and delight our guests.
