Irene Gelfman is the global curator of Pinta Art. She is in charge of directing the special projects that seek to expand and promote Latin American art, as well as to encourage the presence of Latin American contemporary art both in the local and international circuits, with the ultimate goal of giving visibility to emerging and established Latin American artists.
Following these guidelines, in this new edition of Pinta BAphoto she will be in charge of the general curatorship of the fair and of the Video Project and Adriana Lestido's Special project sections.
Since 2015, Francisco Medail has been the face of the Artist Tribute section. A program that recognizes the careers of photographers who actively contributed to the field of Argentine photography, with the aim of recovering and highlighting their significance within local history. Among them have passed: George Friedman (2015), Juan Di Sandro (2016), Frans van Riel (2017), Pepe Fernández (2018), Pedro Otero (2019), Foto Estudio Luisita (2020), Lucrecia Plat (2021), Sara Facio (2022), and this year the work of Boleslaw Senderowicz is being presented.
Fuera de Foco is a sector of solo projects that is thoroughly committed to the exploration of the different procedures, languages and materials especially enabled by the photographic medium’s unique qualities. With the aim of making the work of new generations of artists visible, Fuera de Foco invites four galleries to each present an individual, an installation and an experimental proposal, and combines them to promote a space open for cross-disciplinary dialogue that generates new aesthetic experiences and enriches understanding of the art form.
Para BAphoto 2023 se presenta una nueva sección con editoriales independientes y proyectos de artistas curada por Estefanía Estefanía Papescu (Simetría Doméstica).
