New Date for CIRCA Puerto Rico '10 & Cooperation with Art Beijing'
BAYAMON.- CIRCA PR announced that it has moved from its former date in April to January - from January 29th until February 1st, 2010. This new date will take the fair to a new level of professionalism allowing CIRCA PR to inaugurate the year"s art fair calendar after Art Basel Miami Beach (ABMB).

Unlike Europe or the US, the weather is still deliciously warm and allows the visitor to enjoy great art while experiencing the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. The fair returns for its fifth edition to the prominent Puerto Rico Convention Center in the heart of San Juan.

The unique possibility of visiting collections of an important group of private collectors that have emerged in Puerto Rico - mirroring both local and international trends - together with the singular charm of Old San Juan and the emerging focus of the exhibited art, turn CIRCA PR into the perfect stimulus for the international art lover that seeks exciting art in a more personal, intimate, and one-to-one basis, far away from the madding crowds of most art fairs.

Cooperation Agreement between CIRCA PR and Art Beijing
CIRCA PR and Art Beijing are proud to subscribe a bilateral cooperation agreement for coming editions which will create exciting opportunities between CIRCA PR and Art Beijing through a series of gallery exchanges; the presentation of 3 Chinese galleries with the works of emerging Chinese artists at CIRCA PR and 3 emerging Puerto Rican and Latin American galleries at Art Beijing; the invitation of Chinese collectors to Puerto Rico and Puerto Rican and Latin American collectors to Beijing; and the organization of a series of panels and conferences on Chinese contemporary art in Puerto Rico and on Puerto Rican and Latin American art in Beijing.

Intimate in terms of size and personal in terms of feeling, both CIRCA PR and Art Beijing have become centers for challenging contemporary practices giving visibility to an important amount of extraordinary local artistic talent. In a time when peripheries become the center, CIRCA PR and Art Beijing emerge as an undoubtedly fresh and dynamic scenario for contemporary art.

IDEALS: Sophisticated Emerging Art
Throughout these years, CIRCA PR has been creating an international reputation for its special focus on emerging art, either young or non-established, and it will continue to do so with a new section called IDEALS: a special section that will become a platform for a small group of contemporary emerging art galleries that will present work sold for 5.000 $ or less. The showcased galleries thus underscore their engagement with young or new collectors enabling them with the possibility of buying accessible work from artists that are on their way to gaining international acknowledgement.

CIRCA LABS especially curated for CIRCA PR by Pablo León de la Barra
In its continuing endeavor to promote emerging art and more interdisciplinary and alternative artistic proposals, enabling younger audiences a more democratic and less intimidating access to contemporary culture, CIRCA Labs offers a cross-cultural experience in which urban art, live music, performance, styling, skating, tattooing, and product customization mix - providing a totally fresh and challenging approach to contemporary art practices.

Especially curated by London-based gallerist-curator Pablo León de la Barra, this next edition will present a series of innovative proposals that will engage the public with artistic production in non-traditional ways.

CIRCA PR represents the ultimate art fair: small-sized, intimate while intellectually challenging, staged in an unsurpassed landscape and warm climate that make Puerto Rico the perfect cultural destination.
