PINTA NAMES DANIEL FISCHER AS NEW ARCHITECT
With its new location and wider horizons, Pinta introduces architect and curator Daniel Fischer to its production team.
Regarding Pinta Concept, the fair’s 2021 edition, the search for a location was carried out with one main thing in mind: to find a place that would be both intimate and different from other art fair experiences. Its urban location, uncluttered floor plans and multi-functional spaces aim to dynamize the artistic affaire and invite visitors to engage more personally, all while being cautions of health safety measures.
Designed on a 2nd floor with a cosmopolitan feel, Pinta 2021 will feature natural light and be surrounded by open views; these hint at Pinta’s attitude towards the near future of expanded horizons and new equilibriums.
“The choice of location isn’t naïve” explains Fischer. “The intimate scale, the glass façade and the landscape as artistic scenery are all conceptual and design tools that enable a perfect atmosphere for Pinta as it concludes this year’s agenda and gives way to a promising 2022”
