PINTA CONCEPT - MIAMI ART FAIR 2021 

This year, in its 15th anniversary and after highly transformative events, Pinta ventures into a new concept. New formats, new location and many other exciting ingredients will make up Pinta 2021.

In a blend format which combines premier technology with the glamor of gathering in-person, Pinta 2021 will provide an experience unlike no other. Artists, curators, gallery owners, collectors and art lovers will reunite for the best of what Latin American and Spanish creators have been working on; passionately and relentlessly in the face of a global crisis and its aftermath.

In line with Pinta’s commitment as an international platform to energize and disseminate Ibero American modern and contemporary art, and with a stronger-than-ever bond to its Latin American roots, this year’s edition brings forth an artistic program which includes diverse and interdisciplinary expositions and carefully articulated sections.

While the Main Section will host established galleries, this year’s edition of Pinta will provide a stronger emphasis to Solo and Special Projects. Working with esteemed curators Félix Suazo, Oscar Roldán and Luis Fumero, these two sections will highlight the individual voices of artists who inspire courage and originality. Last but not least, the Editions section will distinguish itself with graphic pieces. All of Pinta’s sections will, of course, be complemented by Pinta Live: where the global public will not only gain access to the fair, but much more too.

As part of Pinta’s online affair, and transcending borders of all kinds, Pinta hosts Media Point, a digital section with unique audiovisual content: talks with experts (LiveTalks), insights on the artists’ work (OpenFile) and custom Live Virtual Tours.

Pinta Concept thus becomes an exceptional showcase which not only highlights the outstanding quality of Latin American art, but also combines exclusivity and long-standing acclaim to enhance the voice of artists and their social, cultural and ecological concerns. It blends the physical with the online, and connects art lovers with art makers; Pinta is more than a fair, it’s a concept.

 

Extending our commitment to the visibility of Latin American art, and having presented Pinta New York and Pinta Miami, we now expand our platform for its new edition Pinta Basel in June 2022.

Diego Costa Peuser

 

Diego Costa Peuser is a cultural manager specialized in Latin American art. In this field, he has led various initiatives that allowed the greater and better understanding of artistic creation in the region.

 

Diego Costa Peuser is the director of the Arte al Día International magazine, founded 41 years ago by Jorge Costa Peuser and considered a leader among the media specialized in Ibero-American art. In this way, he has contributed to the recognition of movements and developments of artistic modernity. Arte al Día International has built a unique archive of reviews, interviews, profiles and news that show the exponential growth of the artistic ecosystem in the region and the world.

 

As co-creator and director of influential art fairs in Buenos Aires, Lima, Miami, New York, London and, soon, Basel, Diego Costa Peuser has promoted a change in the outlook of these metropolises, epicenters of cultural activity, on the nature and historical incidence of American artists. Whether in relation to the avant-garde, as well as to current contemporary creation, the projects directed by Costa Peuser open a dialogue between different practices from the North and the South. In this sense, he has promoted re-readings of art history that have turned the recognition of transcendental works and figures.

 

Committed to the present, Diego Costa Peuser faces challenges with social conscience and responsibility. In 2010 he was distinguished as one of the 100 most influential Hispanics in Florida and from 2011 to 2015 he served on the Miami Board of the TECHO Foundation. For this foundation, and within the framework of Art Basel Miami Beach, he organized the ‘Art Techos’ event that brought together prominent artists in order to raise funds for the construction of houses in less favored sectors of the continent. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Diego's projects provided uninterrupted support and dissemination through innovative virtual platforms. Forward thinking and faithful to progress, the PINTA fairs will be developed in a hybrid format (virtual and in-person) to facilitate access and maximize their reach.

 

His work as projects and media director has been one of the factors in the growing attraction of the Ibero-American artistic language. It has crossed borders and energized the market, providing unique opportunities for all sectors and art agents.
