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. As part of this evolution, I have been invited, along with seven other curators, to help conceptualize this year’s version. Each of us had been asked to organize a section of the fair. I’ve decided to focus on Miami galleries in an effort to shed light on how they have developed a particular tendency to present important canonical artists alongside their emerging counterparts on equal footing, establishing unexpected transgenerational dialogues. While in other cities markets and exhibitions programs are often tiered and historical figures are rarely seen next to young artists, in Miami this happens surprisingly often. The city is not only a crossroad of cultures, but of different historical time periods. Titled “Intersections,” my section aims to present curated two-person exhibitions (booths) by a half dozen local galleries.
