Condo Mexico City will feature exhibitions by 49 galleries across 22 Mexico City spaces. Condo takes its name from ‘condominium’ and is a large-scale collaborative exhibition of international galleries. Host galleries share their spaces with visiting galleries – either by co-curating an exhibition together, or dividing their galleries and allocating spaces. The initiative encourages the evaluation of existing models, pooling resources and acting communally to propose an environment that is more conducive for experimental gallery exhibitions to take place internationally.

For the inaugural year of Condo Mexico City Marso is pleased to host Sans Titre (2016) and Sultana, both based in Paris. The intention of these two exhibitions is to explore the vision of an exotic Mexico and confront the ideals of myths and fantasies, contrasted with a present reality and sensitivity. This confrontation is echoed by presenting the works of two young British artists whose practices allude to an idealized fantasy — and whose work has never been shown in Mexico—, in dialogue with two Mexico based artists that are constantly inspired by the realities of the country.

Sans Titre (2016) and Sultana present works by: 

Paloma Proudfoot (UK, 1992)

George Rouy  (UK, 1994)
