Art Galleries Unite in San Miguel Chapultepec

Much has been written about the burgeoning contemporary art scene in Mexico, but it can sometimes be frustratingly hard to find. Art galleries are scattered around the city, and there is no comprehensive gallery guide. 

Several annual international art fairs have helped raise the ante, especially Zona MACO and The Material Art Fair, both of which include galleries from all over the world. 

And now, in a rare show of solidarity, several galleries and assorted art spaces in San Miguel Chapultepec are hosting concurrent openings this Saturday, April 25. This neighborhood has been gaining strength as the 'Mini-Chelsea of Mexico City', especially since the appearance a few years ago of the ultra-hip Kurimanzutto Gallery.

Calling itself the Ruta de Gallerias, the event includes such other notables as Galería Nina Menocal, Galería de Arte Mexicano, and the Casa Luís Barragán. For a full program and a map (of dubious quality, but it will get you around) see their website.
