The biggest art fair opened night at the massive Centro Banamex convention center on the outskirts of the city. The twelfth edition of the fair features 120 galleries from 22 countries over 12,000 square meters (~129,000 sq. ft.), but still feels manageable and inviting, with wide aisles and open booth plans. Roughly a third of all participating galleries hail from outside Mexico.
Each year Zona Maco, brings collectors, specialists and galleries from every part of the world together in Mexico City.
Founded by Zélika García in 2002, Zona Maco has established itself as one of the most notable platforms for selling, displaying, and promoting international contemporary art in the region.
Annually, the fair offers proposals from more than a hundred galleries, edito-rials, and cultural institutions through five sections: General, New Proposals, Zona Maco Sur, Modern Art, and Design. These proposals are solicited through a selection process led by an international committee, which is composed of renowned gallerists and specialized curators in each section.
