GAMA Crea is probably pretty easily one of the most fun galleries on the Condesa Gallery Scene. Dedicated to urban art, exhibitions have built on the long history of “la grafica mexicana,” a mainstay of Mexican art over the course of the 19th and 20th centuries. The packed exhibition schedule has in the past included illustration, all kinds of printmaking, stickers, tattoos, graffiti, street art, and animation. More recent graphic imports from east Asia have only strengthened and deepened the gallery’s commitment and following.
Visitors need only look for the door on the Calle Comitán. It’s usually covered in stickers.
The gallery opened only in the summer of 2016. Since then, it’s consolidated into a cultural management studio that coordinates with artists and institutions across Mexico City. Enriching the overall cultural and artistic scene in Mexico City, GAMA Crea now presents frequent exhibitions, hosts workshops and similar events, and takes part in urban art fairs and festivals.
In Condesa, the gallery includes two exhibition rooms. They also run a busy store that sells some of the output of participating artists and work-shoppers. They also maintain two common areas that host overflow, extra, and oversized works. In addition to workshops, you’ll also find frequent lectures, masterclasses by artists, and book events.
Hours: Monday through Saturday, 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
