Titled ‘from here to there’, the show includes works by sixteen celebrated Mexican artists, including Gabriel Orozco, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Dr. Lakra, Jonathan Hernández and Gabriel Kuri. The exhibit is extremely exciting for both galleries: the Kurimanzutto Gallery is world-renowned and the Jessica Silverman gallery has played host to many emerging artists whose pieces have been acquired by the likes of the Tate in London, MoMA The Museum of Modern Art, and Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid.
The scale of the opening attracted an incredible crowd, including Jessica Silverman herself and José Kuri, owner of Kurimanzutto. As well as the inspiring company and inspirational art of offer, guests were treated to bespoke, themed cocktails created with Tequila Casa Dragones Blanco. Dinner was served at the beautiful, bright Cala restaurant, the first U.S. restaurant from talented Chef Gabriela Cámara of Contramar, Mexico City, fame.
The evening was informative, interesting and inspiring – it was a true pleasure to be in the company of such creative talent from the ever-changing, ever-exciting worlds of modern art and fine dining.
