(From Material Art Fair Press Release)
Material Art Fair will return for its fourth edition during Mexico City’s most important week
for contemporary art. From Thursday, February 9th to Sunday, February 12th of 2017, Material
will take over two floors of Expo Reforma, hosting an international group of 50 exhibitors,
representing 15 countries and 28 cities.
Daniela Elbahara, Director of Material Art Fair, says: “We’re overjoyed to arrive at this fourth
edition, which is proof that our idea for an intimate, boutique fair experience has been a
tremendous success among collectors and curators as well as the general public. Material
has helped to establish a more exciting and diverse panorama for contemporary art in Mexico.”
In the interest of promoting the national scene, Material’s 2017 edition will feature a strong
selection of Mexican galleries, among them joségarcía ,mx, Lodos, Lulu, Yautepec and, for
the very first time, LABOR, one of Mexico’s most important and internationally recognized
galleries, which will be joining the fair’s principal section.
Mexico City-based architectural studio APRDELESP and the graphic designer, Carla Valdivia,
will transform Expo Reforma’s two floors, each featuring a layout in which the gallery spaces
are situated around a central courtyard that will serve as both social space and center for
activities, including IMMATERIAL, the fair’s first dedicated public program for performance.
Curated by Michelangelo Miccolis, IMMATERIAL will present a daring selection of works in
contemporary live practice by artists working with choreography and performance, blurring
the lines between performer and observer and questioning the conventions of an art fair itself.
Rodrigo Feliz, previously Director of Art Fairs and Sales at LABOR, joins Material as its new
Director of Exhibitor Relations, strengthening the fair’s reputation as one of Mexico’s most
refreshing and exciting art events with his ample international experience. “The quality of
exhibitors in 2017 is going to make this edition of Material the best one yet and will position
the fair as the Latin American referent among like-minded initiatives like Liste, Paris
Internationale, NADA and Independent,” Feliz comments.
