Contemporary Art in Mexico City

Ian Alteveer, Associate Curator, Department of Modern and Contemporary Art

Posted: Thursday, February 6, 2014

Kurimanzutto Gallery

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.


  • Balazs Schreil, M.A. says:

    I enjoy modern and contemporary art, I realized this at the age of 11 in art museums in Germany.
    Since the age of sixteen, I have been sketching abstract modern art. Also, I am a psychologist, and an investigative journalist as well.
