PINTA CONCEPT - MIAMI ART FAIR 2022
This year, in its 16th anniversary and after highly transformative events, Pinta ventures into a new concept. New formats, and many other exciting ingredients will make up Pinta 2022.
In search of new territories and exhibition formats, Pinta Miami inuagurates The Hangar in Coconut Grove. Located in a privileged place and with a strong historical character, The Hangar used to be the base of Pan American. Today, the space retains its functionality and combines elements of nature. The layout is completely flexible, with an open floor plan and abundant natural lighting. Including meeting, lounge and enjoyment spaces, the experience at The Hangar is complete. The wide and state-of-the-art accesses connect water and land, the natural and the built, thus generating a unique environment for art.
In a blend format which combines premier technology with the glamor of gathering in-person, Pinta 2022 will provide an experience unlike no other. Artists, curators, gallery owners, collectors and art lovers will reunite for the best of what Latin American and Spanish creators have been working on; passionately and relentlessly in the face of a global crisis and its aftermath.
In line with Pinta’s commitment as an international platform to energize and disseminate Ibero American modern and contemporary art, and with a stronger-than-ever bond to its Latin American roots, this year’s edition brings forth an artistic program which includes diverse and interdisciplinary expositions and carefully articulated sections.
This year, Pinta Miami has invited curators Omar-Pascual Castillo, Mario Gioia and José Antonio Navarrete for the Main Section; Oscar Roldán Alzate in the Solo-Duo Projects and Main Section; Félix Suazo for Special Projects; Florencia Portocarrero in NEXT; Gean Moreno for Intersections; and the curator architect Daniel Fischer for the design and spatial distribution of the fair.
With vision and creativity, these renowned curators will work to highlight the voices of individual artists and celebrate the American imagination.
As part of Pinta’s online affair, and transcending borders of all kinds, Pinta hosts Media Point, a digital section with unique audiovisual content: talks with experts (Live Talks), insights on the artists’ work (Open Files) and custom Live Virtual Tours.
Pinta Concept thus becomes an exceptional showcase which not only highlights the outstanding quality of Latin American art, but also combines exclusivity and long-standing acclaim to enhance the voice of artists and their social, cultural and ecological concerns. It blends the physical with the online, and connects art lovers with art makers; Pinta is more than a fair, it’s a concept.
Pinta is excited to announce the launch of its mobile app Pinta.Art. With unique access to fairs, events and all the information, this new tool includes innovative functions.
Pinta Miami celebrates its sixteenth iteration in The Hangar, the new venue in the artistic community of Coconut Grove. The Fair presents Latin American and Spanish modern and contemporary art at geographical crossroads. During Miami Art Week, new visitors will connect with larger national and global art enthusiasts and collectors in this landmark building of singular distinction.
Pinta Miami seeks to support artistic practice and encourage collecting, through new and established awards.
With the curatorship of Omar-Pascual Castillo, Mario Gioia and José Antonio Navarrete Pinta Miami's Main Section presents an international selection of galleries in which varied contemporary axis converge and which share an important common gene: Ibero American culture.
Section curated by Oscar Roldán that seeks to highlight the production of contemporary artists, delving into the work of one or two artists selected by each gallery. It is the perfect opportunity for visitors to engage more deeply and personally with the artists.
Under the curatorship of Florencia Portocarrero, Next proposes the visualization of emerging galleries with regard to the contemporary scene of their regions.
Pinta Miami joins this celebration with a new tribute. In collaboration with the Aina Nowack Gallery, we invite our international visitors to enjoy this great symphony inhabited by the lyrical and playful compositions of Ides: her white, black and red series.
The Special Projects section of Pinta Miami 2022, curated by Félix Suazo, presents the work of Carlos Medina, Richard Garet, Muu Blanco and Julia Zurilla, who focus on different aspects of the contemporary art scene, using media such as installation and video. The proposals question issues of high significance in today's society; among them, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the challenges of climate change and the incidence of science and technology in artistic processes.

As the Pinta Art Fair continues to consolidate as one of the most important of the hemisphere, drawing connections between artists, curators, institutions and collectors throughout the Americas, it is also evolving its critical programming.
In these sixteen editions of Pinta, a revisionist endeavor has been clearly manifested, offering very specific and special curatorial views from a historical perspective, where the Latin American tradition of Concrete Art, and its drifts from Op Art, or Kinetic Art, as well as the first Conceptual, and the legacy of the investigations in Geometric Abstraction, or in Object Art, have opened paths that, to this day, continue to be a foothold of interest for artists, for collectors, curators and historians of current art, and for our general public.
Curated by Pascal Tarabay, artist and designer, the show will focus on the Latin American contemporary design scene.
Under the theme Tropicalizando, the selection of furniture, objects, lighting and rugs is a testimony of today’s dynamic interaction between traditional and contemporary design processes and materials, international design culture and local customs, which have created a variety of new hybrid languages and identities in the Americas.
The Media Point section features talks and interviews with collectors, gallery owners, curators and artists involved in the field of contemporary Latin American art. They will reflect on new narratives and the vindication of art in the face of the dispute; the challenges of contemporary art as new formats emerge; the social function of images and their circulation in contemporary society; among other interesting topics.

In addition, the NEXT section (Florencia Portocarrero) will present emerging galleries of great promise and the Photo section (José Antonio Navarrete) explores the fascinating world of photography.

Pinta 2022 will present a VIP cultural program in collaboration with museums and institutions to highlight the best of Ibero-American artistic production inside and outside the fair.

The number of art fairs has grown exponentially since the turn of the 21st century, with more than 300 fairs organized in 2019, making them a vital component of gallery sales strategy. In this masterclass we will discuss how fairs have emerged revitalized from forced closure due to the pandemic, what collectors' expectations are, and how Pinta and its new global identity fits into this new context.
With an experience of more than fifteen years bringing Latin American art to the world, we unify our art and photography fairs, and our cooperation and integration programs, under the Pinta brand; renewing our purpose of highlighting and enhancing the talent of emerging and established artists linked to the region.
