Zona Maco Mexico is the most important contemporary art fair in Latin America

On its 16th edition, the contemporary art and design fair ZONAMACO Mexico, the most important contemporary art fair in Latin America, will present samples of over 180 art galleries and exhibitions from 22 countries in America, Europe, and Asia at the Citibanamex Center from 6 to 10 February.

The exhibition, founded by Zélika García, will feature conferences and talks with artists and experts such as Bob Colacello, former editor of the Interview magazine, and Eugenio López, chairman of the Jumex Contemporary Art Foundation.

This year, the fair will receive new galleries selected by Zona Maco’s artistic director Tania Ragasol and board members José Esparza and Kiki Mazzuchelli.

During the presentation of the fair program, Tania Ragasol mentioned that the direct sales landscape of Latin American art was promising and that the market did not expect a decrease in the region.

“I know there are often certain factors that may concern investors and jeopardize some ideas, but I’ve been working at the fair for a whole year, I’ve faced all sorts of fears. Ultimately, sales always tend to increase and the fair shows a positive balance,” she stated.

The fair’s artistic director also mentioned that this year’s edition will feature a performance hall and three social commitment initiatives to gather funds for indigenous communities in Oaxaca, Chiapas, and Puebla.
