TEXTO 2020 | 5 -8 Feb
11AM - 7:45PM
Last day: 11AM - 4PM
Casa Pedregal, Ciudad de México
Considered part of Mexico’s cultural heritage and a masterpiece of modern architecture, conceived and built by the most important Mexican architect, winner of Pritzker Prize: Luis Barragán.
Around Casa Pedregal, towards the south of Mexico City, there’s a cumulus of cultural landmarks such as the National Autonomous University of Mexico, The Museum of Contemporary Art; Anahuacalli by Diego Rivera, Xochimilco and its invaluable Natural Heritage, San Ángel and its “Bazar del Sábado”, its markets and alleys,
Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo’s spectacular “casa-estudio”; Cuicuilco and its circular pyramid testimony of the oldest civilization in the region; the historic Tlalpan and the “Capilla de las Capuchinas”;
Coyoacán and its main square, markets, Frida Kahlo’s “Casa Azul”, Leon Trotsky’s house and the “Ruta Olímpica de la Amistad” that links the south of Mexico City from Xochimilco to Pedregal.
For TEXTO every detail mattered. Having Casa Pedregal and its more than 3,000 m2 as the venue was a huge privilege.
