Material Art Fair will celebrate its sixth edition from February 7th through 10th, 2019, during Mexico City’s most important week for contemporary art, with an expected attendance of 20,000 visitors. The fair will return to the widely-praised Frontón México, an Art Deco-era sporting arena located directly alongside the breathtaking Monument to the Revolution in the heart of Mexico’s capital.
Material’s Selection Committee — comprised of the galleries LABOR, Mexico City; Ghebaly Gallery, Los Angeles; Supportico Lopez, Berlin; and Andréhn-Schiptjenko, Stockholm — carefully reviewed a record number of applications for the 2019 edition. The result is Material’s strongest and most geographically diverse lineup to date, featuring 73 galleries from 22 countries and 37 cities.
29 galleries will be making their first appearance at Material, including recognizable names from the international fair circuit like Croy Nielsen, Vienna; NoguerasBlanchard, Madrid / Barcelona; Lyles & King, New York City; Galerie Jérôme Poggi, Paris; and Jan Kaps, Cologne, as well as exciting new faces like Suprainfinit, Bucharest; MARGEN, Santiago de Chile; Galerie Maria Bernheim, Zurich; Ilan Karpio Projects, Lima; and M. LeBlanc, Chicago.
Returning international galleries include Emanuel Layr, Vienna; Aoyama Meguro, Tokyo; LambdaLambdaLambda, Pristina; EMBAJADA, San Juan; Sultana, Paris; SKETCH, Bogotá; PIEDRAS, Buenos Aires; and DOCUMENT, Chicago.
