Art galleries are places that are especially intended to display, sell contemporary art and safeguard contemporary artworks by a wide range of national and international artists so that the general public can enjoy and observe them and if they are of interest, acquire them.
Therefore, it is worthwhile to take time to visit Colonia Roma’s art galleries and view the incredible cultural offer that the Mexican contemporary art scene has to offer, giving opportunities to Mexican and foreign artists to exhibit and sell their work.
Only two blocks away from Stanza Hotel, in the corner of Colima and Frontera street is Proyectos Monclova. You will see a gray wall that does not look like 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 purchase contemporary art for their collection.
The gallery first opened in 2005, with the aim of becoming an experimental platform mainly for emerging artists. When you visit this site, you will find works by artists of all generations, from Mexico and foreign countries, which are displayed in two showrooms, you also will be able to access a video room exhibited at the gallery.
Proyectos Monclova also organizes talks and performances that the public can enjoy during their visit. Please visit their website to access their full program.
On Colima Street, you will also find Almanaque fotográfica, a small contemporary photography gallery founded in 2016.

If you continue walking towards Insurgentes, on Tabasco Streed you will find Arróniz. This incredible gallery emerged from a particular interest to work 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.
Their local program is composed of exhibitions of our represented artists, and a parallel presentation in the projects room where a specific piece or project –created with the space in mind– is showed. This allows us them to expand their cultural offer to new audiences while working in collaboration with other artists, curators, and institutions. Arróniz is really not to be missed.
