PINTA PArC ANNOUNCES ITS 2022 EDITION WITH ENTHUSIASM AND AMBITION
The ninth edition of PArC, Perú Arte Contemporáneo, will take place between April 20th and 24th, 2022. Integrated into the Pinta universe, the most relevant international art fair in Peru is characterized by an experimental program and a selection of galleries with diverse and contemporary proposals. Pinta PArC, positioned among the most relevant cultural exchange platforms in the region, can be visited at Casa Prado (Av. 28 de Julio 878, Miraflores). For more information: www.parc.pinta.art
Pinta PArC will count this year with the collaboration of curators Florencia Portocarrero (Next), Oscar Roldán-Alzate (Solo Projects), Verónica Santalla (Media Point), Miguel López (Live Talks) and Jerson Ramirez.
The fair’s MAIN SECTION will present a wide range of more than 42 galleries with great local and international experience. Representing 10 countries, the proposals of the exhibited galleries promise an intercultural American and European panorama that will highlight both the common character of contemporary art and the richness of its differences and alternative perspectives. Some of the galleries exhibiting in this section are: 80m2 Livia Benavides (Peru), El Museo Gallery (Colombia), Ponce+Robles Gallery (Spain), Pabellón 4 Arte Contemporáneo (Argentina), Younique (France), Piero Atchugarry Gallery (United States States / Uruguay), Galería NAC (Chile) and Nosco Gallery (United Kingdom)
The SOLO PROJECT section, for its part, includes the exhibition of six artists represented by their respective galleries. The section, curated by Oscar Roldán - Alzate, is intended as an opportunity to highlight the production of contemporary artists in such a way that visitors can relate to their work in a deeper and more personal way. As a political scientist, artist, curator and researcher, Roldán maintains a fundamentally social axis when it comes to contemporary art. The artists and galleries exhibiting in this section are: Raúl Silva (CRISIS Gallery - Peru), Ana González (La Cometa – Colombia / Spain), Augusto Ballardo (NOW – Peru), Dagoberto Rodriguez (Piero Atchugarry Gallery – United States / Uruguay) and Hernán Salvo (Sasha D art space – Argentina).
Curated by Florencia Portocarrero, the NEXT section brings together 7 galleries that are committed to making the work of young and/or emerging artists visible. In this way, the objective is set on the revitalization of the urban scenes of Latin America in which the exhibited artistic production is registered, such as Buenos Aires, Lima, Cholula, Rosario, Quito and Santiago. After two years of withdrawal due to the pandemic, in this edition of NEXT the featured artists return to manual work and invite the viewers to immerse themselves in long-term projects. The participating galleries are: +Arte (Ecuador), Constitución (Argentina), Galería del Paseo (Peru), Art Base Platform (Mexico), Subsuelo (Argentina), Vigil Gonzales (Peru) and NAC (Chile).
As a novelty, this year Pinta PArC is proud to present a new space with a leading role marked by textile art. Institutionally and with the curatorship of Jerson Ramirez, the aim is to recover, highlight and celebrate the traditional techniques and artistic work of the region. The space is thus dedicated to the exploration of memory, the transmission of cultural values and the examination of the processes and formats that are interwoven in the Peruvian artistic identity.
In line with the Pinta universe, PArC 2022 will host in-person meetings and audiovisual content at the MEDIA POINT. Coordinated by Verónica Santalla, activities such as interviews with artists, gallery owners and collectors will be scheduled in this hybrid section of the fair. In addition, the well-known Open File video series will continue to add artists to its repertoire, discussing specific and personal topics about the works and artistic processes they develop.
Likewise, the LIVE TALKS program will have the collaboration of curator Miguel López. It is proposed as an international platform for conversation and debate on the changes in the art world after the pandemic, the ethics of collecting, the convergences and divergences between art and design, among other topics of interest.
Some of the participants in the Media Point talks include Magali Arriola, director of the Tamayo Museum, Mexico City; Sharon Lerner, director of the Lima Art Museum, Lima; Iosu Aramburú, visual artist, Lima; Maria Wills, Director of Arts and Collections at Banco de la República, Bogotá.
In accordance to the cultural commitment of Pinta PArC and EFG Wealth Management (Pinta's Main Sponsor), the most relevant artistic institutions in Lima will offer exhibitions in special agreement with the fair. In this way, the cultural circuit of the city is activated holistically to offer visitors the most complete local and international experience. The participating institutions are: ICPNA (Peruvian American Cultural Institute), MALI (Lima Museum of Art), MAC (Museum of Contemporary Art), AMANO Museum (Pre-Columbian Textile Museum) and Corriente Alterna.
