NEW YORK, NY.- The PINTA, the unique Latin American Modern and Contemporary Art Fair in New York, opens on November 12th at its new premises on Pier 92 at the Hudson River.

After three successful editions in New York and a first in London last June, PINTA consolidates its position as a leading art fair in two world capitals, establishing new strategies in the Latin American art market and its diffusion, and becoming an essential part of the art world calendar.

This year, three sections will be presented at PINTA NY: the Galleries space, the Solo Exhibitions space, and the Art Projects Space, with selections by curator Pablo Leon de la Barra. 50 select art galleries from the United States, Europe, and Latin America will present museum-quality works representative of abstract, concrete, neo-concrete, kinetic and conceptual art, as well as of other contemporary art movements, in a renewed space for a wider public.

At the Americas Society panel discussion with artist Pablo Vargas Lugo
On November 10th, as part of the joint collaboration with the Americas Society, and its Direction of Visual Art leaded by Gabriela Rangel, PINTA has invited renowned Mexican visual artist Pablo Vargas Lugo to discuss his work with the public in a special panel discussion and dialogue with Yasmil Raymond, curator at DIA Art Foundation. Vargas Lugo has exhibited extensively in venues such as the Blanton Museum of Art; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA); the Museo Carrillo Gil; the Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) PS1.

PINTA NY 2010 has organized a first-rate academic program with the generous support of MBA LAZARD, sponsors of PINTA's exclusive, state-of-the-art auditorium for special conferences and gatherings. PINTA NY's new location also boasts VIP lounges, as well as improved restaurant amenities to offer visitors an enhanced and more enjoyable experience during the three-day event.

PINTA and its one-of-a-kind, strategic alliance with museums for the acquisition of art
As part of a strategy to help museums acquire Latin American art for their collections, PINTA has created The PINTA Museum Acquisitions Program to contribute funds to major museums committed to Latin American art. The PINTA Museum Acquisitions Program has been a decisive factor in the significant global re-reading of Latin American art, to which PINTA has contributed greatly since its first NY edition in 2007.

This unique approach creates an incentive for institutional commitment toward the acquisition of works exhibited in participating galleries at the fair.In this way, during the celebration of PINTA, museums committed to modern and contemporary Latin American art are given the opportunity to enrich their collections with new works. To this date, PINTA has facilitated $250,000 through its network of sponsor friends to activate a matching funds system. Invited museums match the contributions made through PINTA in order to purchase works of Latin American art during the editions of the fair.

Museums invited to Pinta 2010, 4th. Edition
This year, PINTA NY has invited the Museo del Barrio of New York, Harvard Art Museums, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA), Long Beach, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Bronx Museum of the Arts to participate in the fair.

In the previous edition of PINTA NY, the Museo del Barrio of New York added to its collection works by Carlos Karcamo, Fanny Sanin and Milagros de la Torre; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston acquired works by Liliana Porter; the Museo Tamayo also chose a piece by this artist and a work by David Lamelas; likewise, the Harvard Art Museums enhanced its collection with a work by Victor Grippo; the Pinacoteca Sao Paulo acquired a piece by Hermelindo Fiamminghi; the Tate Modern chose Horacio Zabala; and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston purchased a work by Pedro Costigliolo. Other institutions like the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York have lent their support to this fair, which has redefined the vision of Latin American art, and have acquired important works in its previous editions.

At the recent debut of PINTA LONDON, the prestigious institutions that participated in the PINTA Museum Acquisitions Program included: the Tate Modern; the University of Essex Collection of Latin American Art; the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid; the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Barcelona (MACBA); and the Middlesbroug Institute of Modern Art (MIMA), England. The result was that Latin American art experienced a unique moment in Europe, with artists, curators, institutions, collectors, and galleries participating, dialoguing, exchanging opinions, and viewing and reviewing the latest tendencies.

Beyond the significance of their acquisitions in the inevitable process of the globalization of Latin American art, the PINTA Museum Acquisitions Program represents both an opportunity and a welcome challenge for participating galleries.

To participate in PINTA NY means to play a decisive role in the transformation of the way of looking at modern and contemporary Latin American art, and in the expansion of its market.
