Pinta Fair London June 2012

The third edition of the fair focused on Latin-American art had its substance in Neoconcretism, a distinctly Brazilian vanguard movement, and Op Art as its special guest. In general, Abstraction reigned. It is my favourite kind of aesthetics, that is why I enjoyed the fair so much. Furthermore, the re-enactment of Lygia Clarks’s performance “Collective Body” (1959) by English girls made me think about the differences in our culture and wonder if they understood the Tropicalism spirit. Nevertheless, it was good to see how the world is so into Brazil now, with international and Brazilian galleries representing incredible works by our native artists. It was clear that Brazil is on the spotlight and generating brilliance with vibrations that are discovered each day, more and more, which this country has to discharge.
