MIAMI, FL – PINTA Miami, the Ibero-American art fair with a global perspective, is excited to announce that its 12th edition will take place at Mana Wynwood from December 5–9, 2018 during Miami Art Week.
 
PINTA Main Section will include 60 galleries from Latin America, the United States and Europe, showcasing over 300 works by artists including Carlos Cruz-Díez, Carmen Herrera, Fernando Botero, Iván Contreras Brunet, Jesús Rafael Soto, Jorge Eielson, Julio Le Parc, Lydia Okumura, Marta Boto, Waltercio Caldas and Wilfredo Lam.
 
PINTA Countries will have sections dedicated to Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Mexico, and for the first time will include Spain. One curator from each country has chosen six participating galleries: Florencia Batiti (Argentina); Mario Gioia (Brasil); Matias Allende Contador (Chile); Oscar Roldán (Colombia); Alma Ruiz (Mexico); Yara Sonseca Mas (Spain). Each section will include two artists born after 1980.
 
The new Projects Section ("Ad Astra"), curated by Ysabel Pinyol, Curatorial Director of Mana Contemporary (Miami, Jersey City and Chicago) and Co-Founder of Mana Residences, will showcase a panorama of large works.
 
For Proyecto Visible, curator Jesús Fuenmayor has selected works by four emerging Latin American artists interested in creating a dialogue with their environments: Yaima Carrazana (Cuba and The Netherlands), Ilich Castillo (Ecuador), Oscar Pabón (Venezuela and Spain), and Yuli Yamagata (Brazil).
 
In the Collections Program, PINTA MIAMI will present the Colección INELCOM Arte Contemporáneo, curated by Javier Quillis. INELCOM, a technology company in Spain, has one of the most important corporate collections in the country. This is the first time that art from the collection will be shown in Miami.
 
Curated by Roc Laseca, PINTA Platforms is a new innovative program, a cabinet of solo projects giving gallerists the opportunity to bring visibility to the work of a single artist in a unique way.
 
In PINTA Editions, three leading publishers will present editioned works and prints, including Art Nexus.
