Ciudad de México
November 29, 2019 – November 30, 2019
Individual Art Fair
Open-call until August 31, 2019
FAIN: Individual Art Fair is an art fair in which the protagonists are the artists, unlike the traditional fairs where the galleries occupy this place. Organized in partnership between Casa Equis and Grupo Ache, it will take place from November 29 to December 1 in Mexico City.
Any artist regardless of their age, nationality or career may apply to participate in the open call from August 1 to 31.
A renowned jury will decide who will be the participants of the first edition of FAIN. This committee is formed by Dorothée Dupuis (director of Terremoto Magazine, independent curator, editor and writer.), Haydeé Rovirosa (manager and art curator, member of the Patronato de Arte Contemporáneo (PAC)), Mauricio Rocha (Mexican architect with great trajectory), Guillermo Santamarina (was curator of the MUAC, Carrillo Gil Museum of Art and Ex Teresa Arte Actual), Lucía Sanromán (director of the Laboratorio Arte Alameda) and Ana Segovia (renowned Mexican emerging artist).
There is no set theme or format for the participating pieces, it should only be presented with a solid and well justified body of work. This will make a great difference when selecting artists.
FAIN is the perfect space for artists who want to but cannot work with traditional art galleries. It aims for fair, accessible and first-hand trade for consumers who like art.
No work within the fair will exceed $60,000 Mexican pesos, which encourages the creation of new collections and provides opportunities for established collectors.
The artists are the protagonists of the fair, and the goal is to achieve a personal experience to promote dialogue and participation.
The results of the open-call will be announced on September 23, 2019. So if you have something to show the world do not forget to apply and participate in FAIN.
