PINTA, a modern and contemporary Latin American art fair, will open its fifth New York edition tonight with a VIP reception in the Lower East Side (by invitation only). The show, to be held at 7 West 34th Street, will open tomorrow and continue through Sunday, November 13.
PINTA will feature some of the best Latin American art for sale today, at a time when there is increasing interest among museums, dealers and collectors in the region's artistic output. The show includes works by Antonio Manuel, Fernando Botero, Gabriela Machado, and Roberto Matta, to name a few. Abstract and conceptual art figure prominently.
Organizers invited 50 well-known galleries from the U.S., Latin America and Europe to participate in the PINTA art fair. The event coincides with Christie’s and Sotheby’s Latin American art auctions, as well as other events at museums and cultural institutions in New York City, including a collectors’ forum on Latin American art at the Morgan Library on Saturday, November, 12, and an exhibition of Diego Rivera’s murals that opens at the Museum of Modern Art on Sunday, November 13.
