CURAGENDA ANNOUNCES NEW TRAVEL CONCEPTS FOR THE ART WORLD
WELCOME TO MEXICO CITY IN 2017.
One of the most exciting cities on earth, Mexico City is where art lovers are flocking to at the moment, riding on its cultural renaissance. It is suddenly attracting tastemakers from all corners, with its booming art and gastronomy, cutting-edge contemporary and design cultures, backdropped against a rich historical heritage. Previously known as Tenochtitlán, the Aztec capital is one of the largest and most travelled cities in the world. This sprawling megalopolis is not for the faint-hearted and the thriving contemporary art scene is drawing interest from the best and brightest artists, curators, and critics.
The Mexican capital, referred to by locals as D.F. (Districto Federal) offers endless possibilities for visitors, from cultural hot spots, award-winning chefs and restaurants, fashion, design, beaches, ruins, pyramids, wellness, and of course… contemporary art. Did you know that Mexican cuisine has been designated a world cultural treasure by UNESCO?
We have meticulously calibrated a journey for both intellectuals and experiential seekers, exploring Mexico City's best in contemporary art, design and local culture, anthropology, nature, and modern culinary arts inviting food critic Renata Lira as our expert guide.
Zona MACO – a must visit art fair in Latin America, in its 14th edition will be presenting over 100 galleries, cementing its position as a high-caliber event for the global and regional art communities. Its satellite fair Material, will be celebrating its 4th edition. Don’t worry if you missed last year’s art week in the D.F. 2017 will be even better. Mexican culture is known for its spontaneity, and art week insider events will continue to fill Curagenda Specialists' notebooks.
We can’t wait to start planning your Mexico City personalized VIP agenda. During the art week, Curagenda will also be hosting our own private events for our guests to mingle and share stories with locals – making the most out of your curated art trip.
Our personalized approach combined with our creative team of experts provides an exclusive – a more enjoyable and enriching – cultural experience.
