Mexico City is ushering in a new generation of contemporary artists who are gathering recognition in the international arena. Over the past 20 years, the contemporary art scene has flourished with numerous new gallery openings, private collections being displayed and dedicated events established to showcase it all to the world.
One of the newest events to celebrate this art category is the first annual Art Gallery Weekend, which will take place from September 27-29. Conceived by local magazine Código and directed by Editor-in-Chief Ricardo Porrero, Art Gallery Weekend is a new endeavor that brings together artists, gallery owners, collectors and amateurs who will have the opportunity to see the newest art displays.
During Art Gallery Weekend each venue will inaugurate its most significant exhibition of the season. On Friday, September 27, the galleries will be open from 7 pm to 10 pm; Saturday, September 28 there will be extended hours from 11 am to 7 pm and on Sunday, September 29 they will be open from 11 am to 5pm.
