Sonora 128 is a billboard exhibition space organized by kurimanzutto and programmed by Bree Zucker. A one-wall gallery project in the spirit of public art trailblazers, it aims to instigate a conversation with a broad audience by exhibiting major artworks publicly. Occupying a billboard space previously reserved for publicity and commercial use, Sonora 128 continues kurimanzutto´s pioneering and experimental energy. Since its inception in 1999, the gallery has consistently promoted projects and exhibitions outside of a traditional white cube space to stimulate cultural dialogue within a cosmopolitan milieu. Previous such projects have involved showcasing art in local markets, parking lots and airports. Now centering its focus on a group of artists whose work takes an insightful and original pulse of our times, over the course of the next two years, from March 2016 to 2018, kurimanzutto will invite eight artists to exhibit a site-specific large- scale work for a period of three months each. These artists will be selected from a wide array of disciplines, including literature, music and visual art. Located above the corner of Avenida Sonora and Nuevo León in Mexico City, Sonora 128 will be open 24/7, 365 days a year.
