ZONA MACO has successfully settled Mexico as a collecting epicenter for the last 15 years. The ZONA MACO fairs are considered a benchmark within the art, design and antiques ecosystems in Latin America, and have had an annual growth along with solid reliance from key actors in the global scene.

"Since 2002, ZONAMACO has been a key platform in the strengthening process of the art market in Mexico. On the third edition of ZONAMACO FOTO we will feature a selection with a broad landscape of styles, techniques and periods in photography, as well as a consolidation of institutional involvement. Further, we count on a greater interest from young and consolidated collectors that see in the fair the perfect space to acquire photography, in an event that abides by the quality standards that have always been a trademark for us", notes Zélika García, Founder and Director of ZONA MACO.
