Economía de mercado (Market Economy)
August 21, 1999
kurimanzutto represents a generation of young, mostly Mexican artists, supporting their work in Mexico and abroad. The artists and their work is the main focus, and for this reason kurimanzutto does not have a fixed exhibition space —a condition that allows the gallery to adapt to the needs of each project.
On Saturday, the 21st of August, kurimanzutto presents Economía de Mercado (Market Economy). This is the first event in which all the artists are participating, and it is not a traditional exhibition, but rather a pop-up market sale. In addition to the usual flowers, piñatas and pantry items, the Mercado Medellín in the Roma neighborhood will host a one-time only sale of contemporary art. In two stalls rented next to Mr. Ceferino, the fruit vendor, pieces will be on display that have been created from materials found within the market itself. Made specifically for this context, all of the pieces are priced in a range from 25 to 500 pesos.
Economía de mercado will be open to the public for less than 24 hours, during the normal operating hours of the market, from 9 am to 6 pm. The following artists will be participating: Sofía Táboas, Damián Ortega, Gabriel Kuri, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Fernando Ortega, Alejandro Carrasco, Jonathan Hernández, Gabriel Orozco, Daniel Guzmán, Philippe Hernandez, Luis Felipe Ortega, Minerva Cuevas, Abraham Cruzvillegas and Eduardo Abaroa.
