Timed to coincide with auctions of Latin American art at Christie’s and Sotheby’s, the PINTA Latin American Contemporary Art Fair opened Friday at Pier 92 in Manhattan. The exhibit showcases the best of Latin American modern art.
Fifty art galleries from the U.S., Latin America and Europe are showing contemporary work from their collections. Artists, critics and curators will also take part in an international symposium on keeping the Latin American art market vital in the States. Participants include Manuela Vieira Gallo, Tania Candiani, Alberto Borea, and Carlos Basualdo of Philadelphia Museum of Art.
This is the fourth year that the art fair returns to New York. The market for Latin American art has been on the upswing in recent years – mainly because of new buyers from the United States and Europe.
