Despite the decision to postpone this year’s edition of Zonamaco until February 2022, the Latin American art fair’s organisers devised a way to hold on to the nearly 20-year Zonamaco tradition without actually putting on the fair.
Instead, from today until 2 May, Mexico City will host Zonamaco Art Week, a sprawling affair in galleries across the city that aims to revitalise its art scene, “encourage a spirit of collaboration and strengthen the connections with collectors, professionals and the general public.”
The galleries based in Mexico City will host those from other Mexican states, for example the pairing of Nordenhacke CDMX, Curro from Guadalajara and Fifi Projects from Monterrey or partnerships between galleries from the same city, such as Proyectos Monclova and Machete, or Agustina Ferreyra, Llano, YOPE and Salon Silicon in Kurimanzutto. Projects will be presented in different galleries across the city in five different neighborhoods or “circuits”: Condesa, Juárez, Polanco, Roma and San Miguel Chapultepec.
