ZsONA MACO FOTO – Photography Meets Antiquities in Mexico City Art Fair
ZsONA MACO FOTO is an international fair focused on antique, modern and contemporary photography and video. It aims to promote, disseminate and bring photography and video art closer to the general public, as well as collectors. Parallel with ZsONA MACO FOTO, Mexico City will also host (at the same time) ZsONA SALÓN DEL ANTICUARIO (antiquities fair), aiming to promote, disseminate and bring antiquities closer to collectors and art enthusiasts. It is important to distinguish these two fairs from ZsONA MACO, which is a typical contemporary art fair usually taking place in February. Established in 2003 by Zélika García, ZsONA MACO is currently one of the leading art fairs that takes place every year during February at Centro Banamex in Mexico City. However, in addition to the contemporary art fair, Zélika García established ZsONA MACO SALÓN DEL ANTICUARIO in 2014 and is launching ZsONA MACO FOTO in 2015. Therefore, in September, we will have the second edition of the antiquity fair, and the first edition of the art fair that promotes photography and video art.
ZsONA MACO SALÓN DEL ANTICUARIO
This is the second edition of the ZsONA MACO SALÓN DEL ANTICUARIO. It will bring together dozens of collectors and galleries dedicated to the antiquities. On the view will be decorative items, jewelry, furniture, ceramics, clocks, lamps, silver, tapestries, textiles, books, manuscripts and other objects produced before 1960, as well as sculpture, painting, drawing and graphics dating from before 1950. A special committee for the evolution of the antiquities is formed. The majority of the exhibitors come from Mexico City, but there will also be one exhibitor from Portugal.
