Media Point Program 2021

With the curatorship of Vero Santalla, the Media Point section of Pinta Concept 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.

The programme and activities in Media Point are kindly sponsored by Perrier, including Pinta’s auditorium.

Ruby Rumié and Nohra Haime will discuss with Oscar Roldán Alzate the link between artistic practices and politics, and new aesthetic experiences.

A special highlight is given in the Solo Projects section to Ruby Rumié, from the Nohra Haime gallery in New York. This Colombian multidisciplinary artist depicts the artist’s responsibility towards the community in a photographic installation that embodies social and territorial heritage as a creative approach to violence and injustice. In the way she portrays her subjects, Rumié provides deep psychological insight and a powerful sense of identity.
