The Drawing Center | PINTA NY has partnered with The Drawing Center to present the first U.S. publication of Argentinian artist Matias Duville’s new book Alaska. Duville’s project began in 2008 when he started producing prolific drawings of the state, which he has never visited, thus offering an imaginative view of the fabled region. At 11 a.m. on Friday, November 15, 2013, an event celebrating the release of Alaska will take place at The Drawing Center (35 Wooster Street, New York, NY, 10013).
Fundación PROA | Since its inauguration, Fundación Proa is one of the principal art institutions in the City of Buenos Aires, with an annual program of temporary exhibitions and the organization of seminars, courses, conferences, special projects, and concerts. Its program, focused on the promotion of the most important artistic movements of the 20th Century, includes diverse contemporary artistic expressions such as photography, video, design, and electronic music. As the underwriter of PINTA EDITIONS, a featured section devoted to the promotion of the editorial sector, Fundación Proa understood from the start the need to create a platform for disseminating the editorial profile of Latin American foundations committed to the contemporary visual and audiovisual arts.
Americas Society | Partnering to produce the PINTA FORUM series, The Americas Society is the premier forum dedicated to education, debate, and dialogue about culture and public policy in the Americas. Its mission is to foster an understanding of the contemporary political, social, and economic issues confronting Latin America, the Caribbean, and Canada, and to increase public awareness and appreciation of the diverse cultural heritage of the Americas and the importance of the inter- American relationship.
FLORA ars+natura | FLORA ars+natura is a space for contemporary art in Bogotá, Colombia, that specializes in the relationship between art and nature. FLORA’s foci are: production through commissions and residencies, the circulation of the results, and education. FLORA, together with Arcos Dorados, sponsor of PINTA EMERGE, will select an artist from the emerging art platform to attend a onemonth residency in Colombia.
VAEA (Venezuelan American Endowment for the Arts) | The mission of The Venezuelan American Endowment for the Arts (VAEA) is to promote a deeper and richer understanding by Venezuelan citizens of U.S. culture, and by U.S. citizens of Venezuelan culture through the visual and performing arts. VAEA aims to do this by supporting and funding activities such as exhibitions, performance, publication, distribution and dissemination of works, and information regarding visual and performing arts in and of both countries. Additionally, VAEA provides funding and other support to individuals and organizations including domestic tax-exempt and foreign charitable organizations to support and conduct activities in furtherance of VAEA purposes.
