Material Art Fair celebrates its fifth edition from February 8th – 11th, 2018, at the Frontón México, an Art Deco-era sporting arena constructed in 1929 by the architects Teodoro Kinhard and Joaquín Capilla. Abandoned for over two decades, the Frontón has been recently restored to its former grandeur as part of a massive rehabilitation project overseen by Mexico’s National Institute of Fine Arts.
Located alongside the plaza of the breath-taking Monument to the Revolution, the Frónton México is just a few blocks away from the fair’s previous venue, Expo Reforma, and nearby Reforma Avenue, the Centro Historico, as well as the Roma, Condesa, Juárez and San Rafael neighborhoods, in the heart of Mexico City.
