The event at Noho will be an incredible night of art, design, music and cuisine. Don’t miss it! Last year Soho Galleries opened NOHO-Casa del Arte, an elegant space from the 1950’s, that offers an appreciation of art from a unique perspective and a meeting place for art lovers to gather together and enjoy. NOHO has been planning an unprecedented project for quite a while. Combining fashion, art, cuisine and music.


El Jardin Escondido (The Hidden Garden) is a collaboration of 4 artists:  Acclaimed Yucatecan Fashion designers Kika Rodriguez and Aldrin Ayuso and Mexican visual artists Argelia Rojas and Jorge Alberto Aguilar Rojas (JAAR).

El Jardin Escondido (The Hidden Garden)  promises to delight your senses through color, texture, melody and flavor.  Andy Warhol predicted an inevitable phenomenon, declaring that shops would become museums and that all museums would become shops. These secular temples would be a hybrid of art, fashion and architecture, and are the new meeting places for traditional ideas and trade.

Giorgio Armani says: “Of course, fashion is art. The relationship between these universes is very close. Both are means of expression of great power, which create objects not only beautiful, but also capable of moving. ”             NOHO is looking forward to seeing you on Thursday April 19th at 7PM, we invite you to attend dressed in white clothes and ready to be part of a spring night in the Hidden Garden. Admission is free, limited space. RSVP is required: info@sohogalleriesmx.
