Arte al Día International has built a unique archive of reviews, interviews, profiles and news that show the exponential growth of the artistic ecosystem in the region and the world.
As co-creator and director of influential art fairs in Buenos Aires, Lima, Miami, New York, London and, soon, Basel, Diego Costa Peuser has promoted a change in the outlook of these metropolises, epicenters of cultural activity, on the nature and historical incidence of American artists. Whether in relation to the avant-garde, as well as to current contemporary creation, the projects directed by Costa Peuser open a dialogue between different practices from the North and the South. In this sense, he has promoted re-readings of art history that have turned the recognition of transcendental works and figures.
Committed to the present, Diego Costa Peuser faces challenges with social conscience and responsibility. In 2010 he was distinguished as one of the 100 most influential Hispanics in Florida and from 2011 to 2015 he served on the Miami Board of the TECHO Foundation. For this foundation, and within the framework of Art Basel Miami Beach, he organized the ‘Art Techos’ event that brought together prominent artists in order to raise funds for the construction of houses in less favored sectors of the continent. During the Covid-19 pandemic, Diego's projects provided uninterrupted support and dissemination through innovative virtual platforms. Forward thinking and faithful to progress, the PINTA fairs will be developed in a hybrid format (virtual and in-person) to facilitate access and maximize their reach.
His work as projects and media director has been one of the factors in the growing attraction of the Ibero-American artistic language. It has crossed borders and energized the market, providing unique opportunities for all sectors and art agents.
