MEXICO CITY GALLERIES
Mexico City is one of the biggest cities in the world–and it’s not just the altitude that makes you a bit dizzy. The chaotic streets swoon with lawless traffic and lurid colors. As the oldest capital in North America, Mexico City has a long-standing tradition of great art and great art galleries. While gallery hopping here can be a daunting prospect, PotatoMike has whittled it down to some of the best, most innovative and inspirational galleries in town.

LABOR emerges out of the desire to reinvigorate artistic and cultural development in Mexico City, striving to produce cultural capital that reflects the multiple relationships between art and life. LABOR assumes the form of a contemporary art gallery, yet it breaks from archetypal notions of what a commercial gallery should be. It seeks to distance itself from the sphere of consumption and artistic hedonism, with the goal of creating, in the near future, a sustainable cultural economy that strengthens the essence of contemporary artistic labor.
