press: kurimanzutto: josé kuri and mónica manzutto

Mónica Manzutto and José Kuri founded the gallery that united their surnames in Mexico City in 1999, and soon became an international reference for Latin America and to the world: kurimanzutto. The gallery helped plant the seeds of Mexico City’s thriving art scene. Recently the husband-and-wife couple expanded their North American presence by opening a gallery in New York City, which their artists helped design. In this podcast, they speak about how they met, the Fridays workshop, Gabriel Orozco’s role in their founding the gallery, the original “rules” they set, blurring the line between local and international, building artists’ careers, opening in a different era, staying close to artists, and even the perspective that kids bring.
