Contemporary Art in Mexico City
Posted: Thursday, February 6, 2014
We've slipped out of the past and into the amazing present with visits to artist Gabriel Orozco's studio and the Zona Maco art fair. In tandem with the contemporary art crowd's arrival in Mexico City for the fair, the galleries have pulled out all the stops. Here, Adrián Villar Rojas has transformed the Kurimanzutto Gallery's elegant space in the neighborhood of San Miguel Chapultepec into a vast terrain of dirt upon which fruit, vegetables, cast sculpture, and little jewels are carefully arranged in strange and evocative tableaux.
