NEW YORK, NY.- Executive Director Diego Costa Peuser and newly appointed US Director Ian Cofre announce the seventh edition of PINTA NY. Continuing the tradition of coinciding with the Latin American and contemporary art auctions in New York, the fair will take place from Thursday, November 14 to Sunday, November 17, 2013. PINTA NY 2013 will be held in a new location at 82MERCER, a downtown loft-style building located in the heart of SoHo.

To continue its position as a leader in exhibiting and promoting Latin American, Spanish, and Portuguese art abroad, PINTA NY will update its format to present a fully curated fair featuring an international team of recognized curators chosen to direct each of the five newly designated sections of the fair.

PINTA GALLERIES, a cogent, encompassing vision and overall program for this innovative seventh edition begins with art galleries. Ian Cofre (New York) will curate the Contemporary section and Cecilia Fajardo-Hill (Los Angeles) will curate the Modern section.

PINTA EMERGE will be curated by Jose Roca (Bogota/London), who will select and invite ten emerging artists whose individual presentations will give the audience an in-depth look into their current work and practices.

PINTA CENTRO, a regional, curated project will be organized by Omar Lopez-Chahoud (New York/Miami), concentrating on Central America.

PINTA VIDEO presents a selection of new video art curated by Octavio Zaya (New York/Boston/Leon).

PINTA FORUM, the public program and lecture series will be coordinated by writer Miguel Lopez (Lima) and curator Gabriela Rangel (New York).

PINTA NY 2013 will continue its unique MUSEUM ACQUISITIONS PROGRAM, which invites curators and museum directors of partner institutions to enrich their Latin American art collections by purchasing works at the fair with Matching Funds Grants given by PINTA. This year the fair will publish a catalog of works acquired at PINTA NY through the program since its inception. Museums and institutions that have participated in the past include: The Museum of Modern Art, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, El Museo del Barrio, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art, among others.
