"Under the unique circumstances we are faced with this year, we are thrilled to have been able to maintain a significant presence in support for Latin American and local arts," says Diego Costa Peuser, co-founder and Director of Pinta. "Despite Miami Art Basel's cancellation, Miami Art Week remains one of the most important weeks in the art world and we're proud to have offered an innovative hybrid experience."

Pinta hosted a series of private in-person pop-up events in Miami, continuing its support for local and Latin American artists, collections and exhibitions. The show partnered with the Piero Atchugarry Gallery, Jorge M. Perez's El Espacio 23 and Juan Carlos Maldonado Art Collection for private guided tours. 

Additionally, Pinta Miami Live 2020 welcomed the participation of 70 galleries from Latin America, the United States and Europe, presenting artworks from over 400 artists. The show launched several digital components including LiveTalk, a series of conversations with art collectors who discussed different aspects of contemporary art in Latin America; Open Files, a series of shorts videos in which artists presented details about their artwork; and guided virtual tours where attendees explored a selection of works under the gaze of specialists from the Latin American contemporary art scene. 

"Following this year's success, it's an honor to be expanding the show's existence to Basel," says Diego Costa Peuser, co-founder and Director. "It's an exciting indication of the show's growth and an amazing leap for Latin American artists and their reach in the international arts community."
