PINTA MIAMI announces its next edition which will be celebrated in Mana Wynwood

PINTA Miami is glad to announce its eleventh edition to be celebrated between the 6th and 10th of December 2017 at MANA Wynwood located in the heart of Miami Art District. Continuing with its long-time mission to internationalize Latin-American art and create a visualization platform, this edition of PINTA Miami will feature over 60 leading galleries from around the world showcasing the best of what Latin America can offer.

In addition to our Main Section, PINTA Miami will include three Countries Sections featuring Argentina, Brazil and Peru; PINTA Platform curated by Roc Laseca, and PINTA Solo-Duo Project curated by Dan Cameron and Jesús Fuenmayor.

The Main Section of the fair will feature over 60 leading modern and contemporary art galleries. In this section outstanding exhibition of painting, sculpture, drawing, installations and video works will be presented, showcasing the works of over 300 artists. Works from masters like Carlos Cruz-Diez, Waltercio Caldas, Wilfredo Lam, Juan Downey, Julio Le Parc, Victor Vasarely, Jesús Rafael Soto, Joan Miro, Jaume Plensa, Antoni Tapies, among others can be found on the show.

PINTA Solo-Duo Projects curated by Dan Cameron (USA) and Jesús Fuenmayor (Venezuela) will generate a dialogue between Latino and Latin American artists. The purpose of this section is to confront and contrast works to reveal the myths, truths and fictions of how artists experience their cultural background in their works.

For its eleventh edition, PINTA Miami "Crossing Cultures" launches PINTA Platforms curated by Roc Laseca; a program dedicated to promote additional visibility to exemplar contributions in modern and contemporary art. PINTA Platforms will showcase a group of cabinets to exhibit the works of artists chosen by the curator.

Countries Sections in PINTA Miami 2017 will generate a platform to focus on Argentinean, Brazilian and Peruvian production individually, and will be curated by Florencia Battiti (Argentina), Luisa Duarte (Brazil) and Max Hernandez (Peru) respectively. The Peruvian Platform is made possible thanks to the help of Prom Perú. The Countries Sections will be showcasing a different exhibition format, unstructured in comparison to the standard "art fair-format” and will provide a broad spectrum of the participating countries production.

The auditorium will focus on current matters surrounding Latin American contemporary art with noted speakers. Conversations will be taking place Thursday 7th thru Saturday 8th at 4pm in our LATAM VIP Lounge.

This eleventh edition wouldn't be possible without the support of our main sponsor EFG Bank, Wealth Management; and kind sponsors which includes LATAM Airlines, Related Group Mercantil Bank, artprice.com, JW Marriott Miami, Museo Vault and Prom Peru, as well as our Media Partners: Arte al Día International, and our online partner artnexus.com.

ABOUT PINTA MIAMI 

Launched in New York in 2006, the fair is considered the most important event of its kind. The founding of PINTA Miami was a milestone event in awareness of twentieth-century Hispanic-American art. It has increased the visibility in the United States of crucial figures like Carmen Herrera, Julio Le Parc, José Gurvich, Jorge Eielson, Lydia Okumura, Antonio Manuel, Waltercio Caldas, Iván Contreras Brunet, Carlos Cruz-Diez, and Spanish artist Elena Asins. Emerging contemporary artists like Elias Crespin, Iván Navarro, Alexandre Arrechea, Darío Escobar, Matias Duville, Alejandro Londono, Gonzalo Fuenmayor, José Luis Landet, Ricardo Alcaide, Emilio Chapela, and many others have also participated in the fair. Through innovative management strategies, PINTA has been instrumental to major museums acquiring works by Latin American artists. A few examples of such acquisitions include a piece by Abraham Palatnik purchased by MoMA for its permanent collection; a work by Elias Crespín purchased by The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and a work by Fernando Bryce purchased by the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires (MALBA).
