UECLAA was academic partner for London PINTA at Earls Court Exhibition Centre, which was attended by more than 2,000 private and public collectors from across the world and a further 4,000 public visitors.Tate Modern and the Pompidou Centre in Paris were among the internationally renowned museums which bought work at PINTA with UECLAA also purchasing important pieces with the support of the show’s Museums Acquisition Programme.

UECLAA Director Dr Joanne Harwood said: “This is the first time PINTA has come to London after successfully running for three years in New York. UECLAA’s founders pioneered the study and teaching of Latin American art in the UK, so we were delighted to contribute to the success of the show. Our selection for the Museums Acquisition Programme allowed us to purchase important work which will build on our Collection’s significant international reputation for modern and contemporary Latin American art.”
