Pinta Miami presents for the first time the NEXT section, which adopts a curatorial structure based on dialogue and collaboration between galleries. As a result, in five booths, NEXT brings together ten galleries and twelve artists from cities as diverse in the region as Buenos Aires, Caracas, Cusco, Guayaquil, Lima, Rosario, Salta and Santiago de Chile.
In order to promote those emerging careers that boost alternative and dynamic dialogues in joint and collaborative work, the NEXT award was created. This year, the jury includes: Alexandra Bryce, Peruvian collector; Gean Moreno, curator at ICA Miami; and Laura Hakel, curator of the Amoedo foundation. The prize is awarded to the booth that achieves the most cohesive dialogue and integration of the practices of the represented artists.
Winners of the Next Award at Pinta Miami 2022: Benjamín Cieza Hurtado, Vigil Gonzales Gallery, Cusco; and Jurgens Portillo, ABRA Gallery, Caracas.
