Pinta 2011: Aracari at Contemporary Latin American Art Show in London

If you’re in London next week, well then Aracari will be too: Marisol Mosquera is assisting with Tasneem Gallery’s exposition at PINTA LONDON 2011, The Modern & Contemporary Latin American Art Show.

With an exciting array of art from across the continent, PINTA demonstrates just how boisterous the Latin American Art scene is at the moment. And Tasneem Gallery’s exposition will contemplate the diversity of Latin American art, a reflection of the region’s long and vibrant history incorporated with current social and economic dynamics.

Aracari’s involvement with the show marks our continued connection with the thriving contemporary Art scene in Lima; amongst those who are exhibiting with Tasneem Gallery are our friends and Pablo Patrucco and Margarita Checa. Both are renowned Peruvian artists; the former’s paintings try to bring new light over such every day objects in Lima as garbage, public transport and icons of popular culture, while the latter’s work focuses on the energy and posture of the human figure, chiefly making use of such materials as wood and bronze.

The show will be held from Monday 6th to Thursday 9th at Earls Court Exhibition Centre  (Brompton Hall, Warwick Road, Earls Court, London, SW5 9TA). More details can be found below or on Tasneem Gallery’s Facebook page.

Previous Aracari ventures promoting Peruvian Art in London include a talk by Marisol entitled Mystery and History at the Instituto Cervantes. You can read the blog about that here.

Aracari will also be collaborating with Tasneem Gallery on a Collective of Contemporary Peruvian Art which will open on November 11th in Barcelona. You can find out more about that event if you attend PINTA next week or alternatively please do contact us.

We are also in the process of developing a tour that will focus on contemporary art in Lima and that features both Margarita and Pablo, so keep your eyes peeled towards the end of the year!
