Visitor Information

In 2019, Material Art Fair will celebrate its sixth edition from February 7th – 10th at the Frontón México, an Art Deco-era sporting arena located directly alongside the breathtaking Monument to the Revolution, in the heart of Mexico City.

Material’s milestone fifth edition was described as “an architecturally-charged, holistic physical and cultural experience”1 and “a living monument to the vitalization of Mexico City as a distinctive part of the international art community,”2 which was “packed with collectors, curators, and artists”3 and “wowed visitors”4 with “an impressive display of artistic talent”5 and “innovative individuality.”6

The sixth edition will again inhabit the iconic, multi-level structure that debuted this past February, designed by the Mexico City-based architectural studio, APRDELESP, as a site-specific appropriation of the Frontón México’s principal jai alai court.

Material’s organizers look forward to seeing you during Mexico City’s most important and exciting week for contemporary art, at an art fair that’s truly unlike any other in the world.
