From the Zona Maco fair (Feb. 4 – 8). Selections of works from the show follow:
The Mexican contemporary art fair began in 2002, first appearing as MUESTRA in the city of Monterrey, and then as MUESTRA 2 in Mexico City.
Founder Zélika García recognized the need to extend the art market and go beyond the Mexican border. Since 2004, Zona Maco has been based in Mexico City. Today, this celebration is the epicenter of contemporary art, diverse museums, and public and private cultural institutions; there are also many activities and events meant to disseminate the varied expressions of the fine arts.

According to an Artsy editorial, the fair caters to an international audience with galleries from around the world, but all of the works have a Mexican sensibility. Browse these works and tell us what you think in the comments.
