2. PINTA Miami


Preparations are underway for Pinta Miami’s large-scale tenth-anniversary edition to be held at the Mana Wynwood Convention Center in the heart of the Miami Art District from November 30 to December 4, 2016. This edition will celebrate the remarkable history of a fair that has left its mark on modern and contemporary art from Latin America. Since its inaugural edition in 2006, PINTA has become one of the most important outlets for Latin American talent in the region. Thanks to the fair’s management strategies, a large number of works of Latin American art have been acquired by major museums. For example, the Museum of Modern Art in New York acquired work by Abraham Palatnik for its permanent collection. Similarly, work by Elías Crespín was purchased by the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston.
