Fifty24MX Presents Cinco De Mayo Exhibition At Inner State Gallery Detroit
Celebrating Mexican Artists Making An Impact In Contemporary Art
Inner State Gallery and trendsetting Mexico City gallery Fifty24MX are proud to announce a group exhibition opening May 8th featuring 11 Mexican artists that are making an impact in the new contemporary art movement. In addition the exhibition will also bring two of Mexico City’s most prominent muralists to Detroit for a large scale mural campaign in Southwest Detroit kicking off on May 4th in celebration of Cinco De Mayo.
Though the two organizations have worked together extensively on projects throughout Mexico, this May they will adopt Southwest Detroit as the center point of a mural campaign featuring Detroit artist Freddy Diaz, as well as visiting artists Saner, Jesús Benitez and Marka27 in the heart of Detroit’s vibrant Mexican American community.
“After visiting Mexico City in 2013 we were inspired by the style and creativity coming out of the city and this younger generation of artists. When we returned to Detroit we wanted to find a way to unite Southwest Detroit’s community with these artists and felt these murals and exhibition celebrating Cinco de Mayo were a perfect fit,” gallery co-founder Jesse Cory said.
Opening May 8th, the group exhibition at Inner State Gallery will feature a vast collection of original artwork by Curiot, Saner, Smithe, Jesús Benitez, Ciler, Marina Magdaleno, Marka27, Freddy Diaz, Apolo Cacho, Marina Villanueva, Violeta Hernandez and Alonso “Chivo” Guzman focusing on the views and iconography of this emerging group of Mexican artists.
This show will be free and open to the public on view from May 8th - May 30th.

The massive group exhibition serves as introduction to the burgeoning New Contemporary art movement for art lovers in the Midwest, handpicked by one of the scene’s most prolific galleries.
“With roots firmly planted in illustration, pop culture, comics, street art and graffiti, put quite simply the New Contemporary Art Movement is art for the people,” Thinkspace co-founder Andrew Hosner said.
For the eight iteration of Thinkspace’s traveling group exhibitions, co-owners Andrew and Shawn Hosner hand picked Detroit to showcase one of their most ambitious collections to date. As part of the exhibition the Hosners have also picked two featured artists, Stephanie Buer and Liz Brizzi for their unique hyperreal depictions highlighting Detroit’s vast and varied landscapes.
“We are extremely honored to present this amazing group show alongside Thinkspace. We have always admired the way Andrew and his partners have pushed boundaries and constantly strived to elevate each of their artists. Their attention to detail and passion in this community is unparalleled,” Inner State Gallery owner Dan Armand said.
