The Best Booths at the 2024 Material Art Fair


Material, one of Mexico City’s most closely watched art fairs, has returned for its 10th anniversary edition this year, opening to VIPs on Thursday morning. With booths spread across two floors of the Expo Reforma convention center in Colonia Juárez, the offerings here are strong. There’s great art to behold, many artists to learn about, and wonderful conversations to be had.

One of Material’s newest initiatives is the relaunch of its Proyectos section. At this edition of the fair, six spaces are chosen to participate for free in the fair, where they partnered with a curator to serve as a mentor and are given access to various services to help them grow their programs. All the galleries in this cohort are from beyond Mexico City. Though they are younger, emerging spaces, they have quickly established themselves as important to their communities. Three come from border cities: Tijuana, Mexicali, and Ciudad Juárez. The robust showings here prove how a fair can help a newer generation of dealers in a meaningful way.

Below, a look at the best booths at Material, which runs through February 11.
