Elisabeth Johs Unveils a New Art Space in the Heart of Mexico City

Today, Danish gallerist and curator, Elisabeth Johs, unveiled a new art space in Mexico City (CDMX), titled JO-HS. Serving as a hybrid space, which includes a living space, artist residency and shop, Johs first envisioned the project as a way to bypass the COVID travel restrictions that prohibited her and many Europeans from entering the United States.

Similar to her usual home in New York City, CDMX is one of the leading capitals of art in North America. The Modernist building that JO-HS inhabits was designed by famed architect, Carlos Herrera, whose clean lines coexist harmoniously with the cities rich natural landscape. “I have long admired the vibrancy and creativity of this city,” said Johs, adding that she aims for “JO-HS to be a hub for international creativity where we celebrate the work of Mexican artists in particular.”

For the inaugural exhibition at JO-HS, the gallery has done just that, by enlisting ten emerging Latin American artists: Alicia Ayenegui, Carlos Garcia Noriega, Carla Hernández, Celeste, Emilio Chapela, Fernando Ocaña, Miguel Pedroza, Alonso Leon Velarde, Perla Krauze and Tania Ximena. “Vivarium” will be on view until December 4.

Elsewhere, Tiffany & Co.’s latest advent calendar features the artwork of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
