The Municipality of Córdoba announced in the last hours of yesterday the suspension of the 10th edition of the Córdoba MAC Art Fair, also known as the Contemporary Art Market, scheduled to take place between November 3 and 6, which generated disgust in the sector.

The Association of Art Galleries of Córdoba Faro issued a statement in which it stated: “We feel deeply affected by this resolution. It is a huge loss for the culture and scene of Córdoba and the region” “The implication of this decision generates an enormous economic and moral damage for all the actors that are part of the visual arts”, the association extended, which pointed directly to the municipal Secretary of Culture for “suspending” the event.

From the portfolio they insisted that the fair “has been rescheduled” and that they are “working on its programming, with the aim of holding it in the coming months.” However, the proximity of the canceled date generated numerous questions.

The Ministry of Culture added in its statement: “We have convened a work table to coordinate actions with the institutions and co-organizers to, through the joint work of all the actors, finalize the realization of the Fair in a positive and successful manner as the sector of the visual arts of Córdoba”.

“Intensive work is being done to assign the new completion date, which will be communicated shortly,” concludes the message from the local portfolio.
