LONDON.- During the first London Pinta art show, strong sales were seen across the board in a packed Earls Court Exhibition Centre. At this inaugural modern and contemporary Latin American art show, over 2,000 enthusiastic international private and public collectors attended the opening, with a further 4,000 visitors during the show, as they competed for paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, videos and installations by some of Latin America’s most celebrated artists.

Museum curators had a challenging choice in what to choose from among the 50 renowned international galleries exhibiting. Pinta’s Museum Acquisition Programme enables important institutions to buy Latin American works of art, through a matching funding system:

• Tate, London: acquired an ink drawing on paper by Brazilian Lygia Pape from Arevalo Arte and also they incorporated four works on paper by Brazilian Paolo Brusky from Nara Roesler.

• Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris: acquired work by Argentinian artist Marta Minujin from Henrique Faria.

• University of Essex Collection of Latin American Art, Colchester: acquired a pair of works on paper by Argentinian artist Ana Sacerdote; an oil on board by Uruguayan Gaston Olalde from Sammer Galleries and two works by Mexican Demián Flores from Ginocchio Gallery.

• Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid : acquired a video by Argentinian artist David Lamelas from Henrique Faria.

• Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Barcelona, MACBA: acquired a video by Venezuelan artist Claudio Perna from Henrique Faria.

• Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, MIMA, Middlesbrough: acquired works on paper by Argentinian artist Horacio Zabala from Henrique Faria.
