With the curatorship of Oscar Roldán and Luis Fumero, the Solo Projects section acquires a stronger protagonism this year. The section is dedicated to gallery exhibitions that consist of works by a selected artist. It is the perfect opportunity for exhibitors to shine a bit extra, and for visitors to relate more profoundly and personally with artists.
“This year, the Solo Projects section captures the artists’ work in the aftermath of the pandemic” shares Luis Fumero, one of Pinta’s curators. “Now what?.. Many ask themselves; we strive to assess and grasp the new places to which contemporary art has taken us. Are we still the same? Are we trying to go back to where we were? Or, has everything changed? Art has always been a visionary epitome of the road humanity eventually takes… so, what will we find in it? And what’s behind it?”
A special highlight is given in this section to Ruby Rumié, from the Nohra Haime gallery in New York. This Colombian multidisciplinary artist depicts the artist’s responsibility towards the community in a photographic installation that embodies social and territorial heritage as a creative approach to violence and injustice. In the way she portrays her subjects, Rumié provides deep psychological insight and a powerful sense of identity.
