In a press conference before the media, the board of directors of Bada presented the spirit of this fair that reaches its third edition.
“The one who best knows what inspired him and tells his story is the artist. Being able to have a direct encounter with the public, because the work is completed by the one who sees the finished work. That is the spirit of Bada that has found a a very special place among art lovers in Mexico City”, commented Ana Spinetto, General Director of BADA.
This revolutionary project was born in the Argentine capital by Ana Spinetto, who, thanks to the collaboration of Leni and Daphne Ibargüengoytia, promoted the insertion of this model in Mexico City from 2020.
“When we stand in front of a work we know if we like it or not, why does someone have to come to tell us what we like and what excites us? And that is what art is to transmit emotion, a language of what happens to them to people, it is a universal communication”, added Spinetto.
In this fair, 100 artists participate in an event that is held from February 9 to 12, 2023 in the Campo Marte in Mexico City. Among these will be 12 artists sponsored by the State of Mexico, the only state sponsor of the event, with the participation of the installation by visual artist Bestsabeé Romero, which introduces us to an immersive space with concave mirrors and lights. As well as the Chinese artist Yvan Deng, who will paint a live mural during the fair, as he does in world-class fashion events such as Prada and Valentino, among others.
José Cacho, Yolanda López, José Ignacio Nuño, Ana Rojas, Tanya Huntington, Francisco Ortiz, Mata Rodríguez, Mónica Aceves, María José Benítez Galindo and Víctor Servín, are some of the names of the participating artists for BADA 2023.
“We will be offering art workshops using recyclable materials so that children can give artistic meaning to everyday elements,” said Daphne Ibargüengoytia, Executive Director of BADA.
This event has sought to support talent above all things, taking into account as emerging artists participants from 18 to 35 years old, some of whom were supported by one of the main sponsors such as Banco Azteca.
In her participation, the Artistic Director of BADA, Leni Ibargüengoytia, commented on the importance of each of the participating artists. “Here we have from a 26-year-old creator who is in her first fair, to other established ones over 80 years old. Our selection does not prioritize by gender, although there is a higher proportion of women, this time it has been about talent from the creators who have given them a place at this fair”.
One of the innovations offered by BADA 2023 is that the 100 artists will be able to offer authentic pieces in a reduced format at an affordable price so that there are new collectors, which do not exceed 2,500 Mexican pesos and give the public a new proximity to the creator. .
Inside the place there will be amenities to eat, drink and rest during the fair.
