On May 13 another edition of the Noche Blanca will take place in Mérida, and this time there will be more than 30 galleries participating in the city’s most important cultural festival, informed Esme Ramírez, coordinator of the participating spaces.

There will be 30 galleries participating in this edition of the Noche Blanca, 90 percent of them located in the Historic Center and others in Itzimná and surrounding areas: “We are starting to leave the circle of the zócalo and the main square”.

He recalled that the White Night will feature more than 250 activities including exhibitions, performances and concerts offered by local, national and foreign artists. They will offer, he assured, a great diversity of events.

Some galleries, explained Esme Ramirez, will participate in La Víspera, which will take place on Friday, but most of the events will take place on the Saturday of the Noche Blanca.

Galería Terracota, Nahualli, Casa de Artistas, La Galería, Estudio Juan Pablo Bavio, Art 64.53, Art 44 Mart, La Cúpula, Lux Perpetua and Galería Darío Villacís are some of the spaces that will participate in the showcase.

The White Night project, the coordinator recalled, started with the participation of between 10 and 12 galleries, all located in the Historic Center of the Yucatecan capital, and as the years have gone by, she celebrated, their presence has been consolidated.

“We have galleries such as SOHO and Estudio Juan Pablo Bavio, which were the first that were with us and have remained, and there are others that over the years have established themselves and have been working for years,” she added.

These sites, Esme Ramirez added, are a meeting point for sales and for artists with their public. That is why in this 15th edition, she celebrated, there will be 30 participating.

During the emergency of the Covid-19 pandemic, he recalled, approximately 10 galleries closed in Mérida: “Surprisingly, in spite of the economic crisis, new ones opened and we returned to the numbers we had before”.

Gallery owners, he commented, do very well during the Noche Blanca, because it is a pretext for artists to meet their audiences and for them to get to know the work of both national and foreign artists.

“There are others that promote the work of artists who are starting their careers, such as Punto Rojo, which opened its doors to UADY university students, people who are studying visual arts and starting their careers”.

In this sense, Ramírez added, the Noche Blanca is an important means of diffusion so that people begin to locate them and continue working, and even if the sale is not achieved that day, people will return and the sale will take place on another occasion.
