Dominik Mersch Gallery (DMG) is pleased to announce its selection as one of twenty-two international galleries participating in the 2018 CONDO in Mexico City. DMG joins the CONDO project in its third year as an innovative and collaborative alternative to the art fair model. First founded in London, CONDO will be connecting host galleries in Mexico City this year with visiting galleries from across the world, including Tokyo, Berlin, Sydney and Stockholm.
DMG will be working alongside Patricia Conde Galería to realise a month-long exhibition entitled ‘Sydney goes Mexico City’, combining the vibrancy of the Mexico City art scene with the work of both emerging and established artists. As the only Australian gallery selected to participate, DMG will take in its stride the CONDO mission to open up lasting and lively conversations about art that reach across the international stage. The exhibiting artists include Jon Cattapan, Locust Jones, Meng-Yu Yan, Nike Savvas, Emma Fielden, Lucas Davidson, Dani Marti, Isidro Blasco, Lottie Consalvo, Adrienne Gaha and Kei Takemura.
Mersch has said of the exciting one-way gallery swap, “the last two CONDO events were a great success. There was one in London and then New York. Participating galleries have a great opportunity to get to know another market, introduce their artists to new opportunities and interact with other galleries in a meaningful way.”
