Material Art Fair will celebrate its seventh edition from February 7th through 9th, 2020, during Mexico City’s Art Week, with an expected attendance of 20,000 visitors. The fair will be held for a third occasion at the beloved Frontón México, an Art Deco-era sporting arena located directly alongside the breathtaking Monument to the Revolution, in the heart of Mexico’s capital.
Independently owned and operated in Mexico City since 2014, Material is now a reference point for art fairs in Latin America. Relentlessly innovative, Material is an experiential and experimental platform for contemporary art and ideas.
The fair’s 2020 Selection Committee — featuring the galleries LABOR, Mexico City; Emanuel Layr, Vienna / Rome; Instituto de Visión, Bogota; and Lulu, Mexico City—evaluated a record number of applications received from over 30 countries across five continents, a clear indication of Material’s international prestige.
As a result of the committee’s careful and exhaustive review process, Material is overjoyed to announce its largest lineup to date, featuring 78 galleries from 21 countries and 37 cities.
Of those, an impressive 25% of Material’s exhibitors are based in Mexico, offering an unparalleled opportunity for collectors, curators and art enthusiasts to engage with one of the world’s most vibrant and consistently interesting contemporary art scenes.
