PINTA NY - PINTA MIAMI
Continuing the tradition of coinciding with the Latin American and contemporary art auctions in New York, the fair took place in a new location at 82MERCER, a downtown loft-style building located in the heart of SoHo.
To continue its position as a leader in exhibiting and promoting Latin American, Spanish, and Portuguese art abroad, PINTA NY updated its format to present a fully curated fair featuring an international team of recognized curators chosen to direct each of the five newly designated sections of the fair.
PINTA GALLERIES, a cogent, encompassing vision and overall program for this innovative seventh edition begins with art galleries. Ian Cofre (New York) curated the Contemporary section and Cecilia Fajardo-Hill (Los Angeles) curated the Modern section.
PINTA EMERGE curated by Jose Roca (Bogota/London), a selection of ten emerging artists whose individual presentations gave the audience an in-depth look into their current work and practices.
PINTA CENTRO, a regional, curated project curated by Omar Lopez-Chahoud (New York/Miami), concentrating on Central America.
PINTA VIDEO presented a selection of new video art curated by Octavio Zaya (New York/Boston/Leon).
PINTA FORUM, the public program and lecture series was coordinated by writer Miguel Lopez (Lima) and curator Gabriela Rangel (New York).
