Condo Fair to Launch in Mexico City and Shanghai Next Year

Condo, a program that enables galleries to play host to each other nationally and internationally, will launch editions in Mexico City and Shanghai next year, writes Naomi Rea of Artnet. Condo—created, according to organizers, as an alternative to the costs and pressures of the monolithic art-fair circuit—started in London last year as the brainchild of Vanessa Carlos (of the gallery Carlos/Ishikawa). It was so successful that it came to New York this summer (it closes at the end of this week). Of the first New York edition, Carlos said, “It had the same communal atmosphere as the London edition, which was important to me, and it definitely achieved the aim I have for Condo of demonstrating an alternate way of exhibiting abroad, of focusing of collaboration and of proposing a good way for audience members to encounter international artists and galleries.” Condo New York was organized by Carlos, Simone Subal (of Simone Subal Gallery), and Nicole Russo (of Chapter NY).
