Mariane Ibrahim bets on CDMX as an artistic hub
Mexico City is shaping up to be an international, cosmopolitan artistic center, comparable to New York in terms of diversity, according to gallery owner Mariane Ibrahim, who opened a branch office in the nation's capital, in addition to those in Chicago and Paris.
I'm not the only person who thinks so. My colleagues also think that Mexico City will be the next New York, in terms of diversity," said Mariane Ibrahim in the new space at Río Pánuco 36, Renacimiento neighborhood, which this Tuesday inaugurated the exhibition La memoria del agua, by artist Clotilde Jiménez.
Ibrahim expressed her interest in Afro-Hispanic culture, which she expects to resonate in the gallery, in principle with Jimenez, an artist born in Honolulu, Hawaii, who lives in Mexico, and whose work presents Afro-descendants exercising their freedom in the most everyday actions, such as rejoicing on the beach.
