A Close-Up of Latin American Art Will Capture New York’s Look Again
November 13th – 16th, 2008

Metropolitan Pavilion and Altman Building


Manhattan will welcome this Latin-American art fair for second year in a row. Fifty galleries of the United States, Europe and Latin America will display the finest selection of Modern and Contemporary artworks by artists of the region

Artistic diversity and creative vitality of Latin America will pulse through Manhattan when PINTA, the Latin American Fair for Modern and Contemporary Art, comes back to the city this coming fall for second year. From November 13th to 16th, the Metropolitan Pavilion and Altman Building will embrace the finest selection of artworks that represents the many ways that artists of this region have approached the visual arts.

PINTA 2008 will honor one of the most prolific artists of our times, Peruvian Fernando Bryce. Born in Lima in 1965, Bryce is member of South-American art elite who has pierced the consciousness of the world community. His drawings are reflections of the collective history of Latin America, an impression he fosters through his reproduction of various forms of printed media. Some of his conceptual artworks have been included in permanent collections in the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York and the Tate Gallery in London. During the official launching of Pinta on November 12th at The Americas Society (680 Park Avenue), Bryce will discuss recent trends in Latin American art.

Last year, this event was acclaimed by art media and collectors for its stylish layout. “Pinta is a big event in a small package,” wrote Holland Cotter, an art critic for The New York Times. Moreover, its astonishing selection exceeded the scope of other art fairs. This year, Pinta will extend its capacity while preserving its distinctive layout and level of quality to attract collectors and an audience interested in the artistic overview of
the region.

Fifty galleries from the United States, Europe and Latin America will display works by their artists to provide an exceptional close up of modern and contemporary art with emphasis on abstract, concrete, new concrete, kinetic and conceptual trends.
