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.
Being one of the distinctive aspects of our fair, in some way, this approach to "our ways of abstracting ourselves". Thus, it is natural for our public to find in Pinta “historical jewels” of Latin American abstract art, be them concrete, post-concrete or kinetic. Giving conceptual form to a vision that connects our past with our present, around this obsessive sign with the abstract as "something" that distinguishes us, is what CUBE intends to do as a first, this time, naming it. A section that brings together two galleries, which will present three artistic proposals as gabinets or suittes. The Miami Sammer Gallery will present a selection of works where the sculptural will prevail by the Argentine masters Martha Boto and Gregorio Vardanega, where elegance and nostalgic modernity foster an intimate dialogue, in a low voice, almost in silence, like whispers that denote how they understood and expanded the linguistic investigations of avant-garde non-representation. To which is added the Peruvian Galería del Paseo, with a set of exquisite works by the young Argentine artist, Azul Caverna, who will present a riot of color; this time, contained, controlled color, tied short, color tied up in that beautiful cage that Art sometimes knows how to be, as sensory and poetic beauty.
