This month, Elena ventured on an art-filled adventure to Mexico City and Oaxaca. From the Material Art Fair and Zona Maco, to Salón ACME and intimate studio visits, there was no shortage of creative inspiration. In between openings and previews, she dove deep into art research… and of course some mezcal tastings along the way.
When Elena visits the fairs, she’s laser focused. Her process involves looking for specific works for select clients, connecting with galleries, dealers and – sometimes most exciting – discovering new artists. If Mexico City was about art and design research, then Oaxaca was certainly about accessories. Elena scouted for local ceramics, textiles, and glassware to bring back insight and material for an upcoming interiors photo shoot. The trip refueled the mind and refreshed the senses with warm sunny days and delicious cuisine. We added to our roster of talent for design and art advisory and bolstered the creative visions for this year’s projects.
