PINTA ART ANNOUNCES NEW TEAM MEMEBERS FOR 2023
Having concluded a 2022 of strong dynamics and international growth, Pinta is expanding its team with great enthusiasm and incorporating Inés Starc as Gallery & Project Manager for all fairs, and Irene Gelfman as Curator and Project Manager at Pinta Art.
Pinta aims to develop artistic projects and commercial actions that promote and support the Latin American ecosystem to expand the scope of modern and contemporary art through international art fairs. With 16 years of experience in America and Europe, Pinta Art will continue to develop Pinta Miami, Pinta BAphoto, Pinta PArC and Pinta Sud.
