Sometimes we might think that Mexico City does not need anything, precisely because it is possible to find venues of all kinds, such as the art galleries in the Roma neighborhood, which complete a wide range of places worth visiting. .
Art galleries are spaces that are especially intended to protect works by plastic, graphic and visual artists, with the purpose that the public can learn about them, observe them and, if they are of interest, acquire them.
On the official CDMX Travel site, run by the capital's Tourism Secretariat, it is detailed that Mexican art, until before the Revolution, was influenced by European currents; However, after the revolutionary struggle a new generation of artists appeared.
“The new generation of Mexican artists emerged to give life to a creative sector within the city. Currently, young people are opening galleries with the aim of giving emerging artists more options to show their work,” says CDMX Travel.
Therefore, it is worth knowing which art galleries in Rome are giving the opportunity for exhibition and sale to Mexican and even foreign creators.
Just two blocks from the Stanza Hotel, on the corner of Colima and Frontera streets is Proyectos Monclova. You will see a gray fence that does not appear to be a gallery but you can ring the bell to visit the most amazing exhibitions. This is one of the most visited art galleries in Colonia Roma, both by locals and foreign visitors when art lovers want to acquire contemporary art for their collection.
The gallery first opened in 2005, with the aim of becoming an experimental platform primarily for emerging artists. By visiting this site, you will find works by artists of all generations, from Mexico and foreign countries, which are exhibited in two showrooms, you can also access a video room exhibited in the gallery.

ARRONIZ CONTEMPORARY ART
If you continue walking towards Insurgentes, on Tabasco Street you will find Arróniz Arte Contemporáneo. This incredible gallery arose from a particular interest in working with a new generation of artists from Mexico and Latin America. They strive to support and closely follow the careers of our artists both locally and internationally.
Its local programming is made up of exhibitions by our represented artists, and a parallel presentation in the project room where a specific piece or project is displayed – created with the space in mind. This allows them to expand their cultural offering to new audiences while working in collaboration with other artists, curators and institutions. Arróniz really can't be missed.
