Pinta PArC closed its 14th edition with more than 200 artists and 44 galleries. From April 24 to 28, 2024 at Casa Prado, the fair brought together curators, gallery owners, artists, collectors and art lovers.


Pinta PArC was a portal to the multiple cultural expressions that characterize the Latin American continent. Each project and work exhibited told a unique story, reflecting the complexity and beauty of the region. During five days, the fair became a meeting point and an experience that challenged visitors to explore new conceptual and sensitive horizons.


Pinta's commitment to promoting, celebrating and positioning modern and contemporary art from Latin America was once again demonstrated. As a result, this year it consolidated a great lineup of curators and sections. Irene Gelfman -general curator and Video Project-, Sharon Lerner -curator of Artist Tribute-, Florencia Battiti -curator of RADAR-, Florencia Portocarrero -curator of NEXT-, Giuliana Vidarte -curator of FORO and Special Project-, and Max Hernández Calvo -curator of Sculpture Garden- made up the curatorial team of the 2024 edition. In addition, the fair featured international guest curators Laura Hakel and Beatriz Lemos.

Awards and Acquisitions Program

As in all Pinta events, Pinta PArC features an awards and acquisitions program that seeks to support artistic practice and encourage collecting, while underlining the fair's importance as a special meeting point for the international art community, where art is not only exhibited, but also recognized, celebrated and promoted into the future.


This year, Miguel Aguirre was named as Pinta PArC's nominated artist for the EFG Latin American Art Award. The selected artwork is Lima I, from the Hardscape series, 2024, at Daniel Cuevas Gallery. The EFG Latin America Art Award seeks to promote the creation and development of visual arts in the region and to attract collectors to art fairs in Latin America.

The NEXT Award is part of the section curated by Florencia Portocarrero, which is based on the recognition of the unique potential that each art gallery brings to the table. In this edition, the NEXT Award was shared by the galleries Salón Comunal (Bogota, Colombia) and Remota (Salta, Argentina). The prestigious jury was made up of curators Beatriz Lemos (Coordinating Curator of Inhotim), Laura Hakel (Curator of the Collection and Artistic Projects of the Ama Amoedo Foundation and ISLAA Curatorial Fellow at the New Museum, New York, USA) and artist Gilda Mantilla (Los Angeles, 1967).


For the first time, the Special Mention for the best stand in the RADAR Section was awarded to COTT Gallery (Buenos Aires, Argentina), a gallery that offers proposals that invite us to think about society and individuality and reflect on the world we live in. The jury was formed by Max Hernández Calvo and Irene Gelfman who unanimously remarked the excellence of the section and highlighted COTT gallery for the dialogue proposed between both artists. The mention was made possible thanks to Unicoin which, in partnership with Pinta PArC, seeks to support the international art community and foster connections between the art world and cryptocurrencies.

Last Wednesday, at the EFG VIP Preview, Argentine collector and philanthropist entrepreneur Jorge M. Peréz acquired works for his collection at Espacio 23 in Miami. Among the purchases made by this prominent Latin American figure: works by María Ossandón of Galería Aninat (Santiago, Chile), Gonzalo Hernández of Galería Vigil Gonzales (Cusco, Peru | Buenos Aires, Argentina) and Mateo Cohen of Salón Comunal (Bogotá, Colombia).


Additionally, consolidating its contribution to culture and artistic creation, CC17 Inmobiliaria, who for the second consecutive year is an official sponsor of Pinta PArC, acquired two works by Peruvian artist Patrick Tschudi from Forum Gallery (Lima, Peru), reaffirming its strong support for the expansion of art and the national art scene.
