NEXT Award 2023


In this 2023 edition of Pinta PArC, the jury for the NEXT section award is composed of Alberto Servat –manager of ICPNA Cultural–, Carla Acevedo Yates –curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago– and artist Ximena Garrida Lecca.


On Wednesday, April 19, Remota Galería was announced as winner, from the city of Salta, Argentina. The goal of the space is to disseminate local art production, which is varied and complex, to the world, and to contribute to local cultural development with exhibitions at the gallery. The gallery's staff of artists manages a wide range of aesthetics and productions that together attempt to show a cross-section of this scene that is multiple and intercultural. The gallery's directors are Gonzalo Elias and Guido Yannitto.
