Mariane Ibrahim to Open Gallery in Mexico City Next February
Mariane Ibrahim, whose namesake gallery has locations in Chicago and Paris, will add a third exhibition space to her portfolio. Next February, the gallery will open in Mexico City, timed to the country’s main art fair Zona Maco.
The two-level space, measuring over 10,000 square feet, will be located at Río Pánuco 36 Col. Renacimiento, in a 19th-century building on in the city’s Cuauhtémoc neighbor, not far San Rafael and Roma. The inaugural exhibition will be dedicated to a solo show of Clotilde Jiménez, an Afro-Latino artist now based in Mexico City.
Mariane Ibrahim told ARTnews: “We are going to where the future is, not where the present moment is. Mexico City is, for us, the future of the space, and a place we have had a strong connection with, prior to any market consideration. We want to continue to push the boundaries and feel Mexico City will be receptive to our program due to its heritage."
