The EFG Latin American Art Award is an initiative of EFG Wealth Management in collaboration with ArtNexus that was created to support a Latin American artist whose work is shortlisted through a judging process at contemporary Latin American art fairs throughout each year. The award aims to promote the production of Latin American visual arts and increase awareness of regional fairs among collectors around the world.
Artists exhibited at fairs in Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Colombia and Chile participate in the selection process. Annually, the winner is announced in December at Pinta Miami, where talks and meetings are organized to celebrate the award.
The award is by acquisition, so each year one work by the winning artist is acquired by EFG and displayed in the permanent collection of EFG Capital in Miami.
The work nominated by curator Magali Arriola, (Director of the Tamayo Museum) for the EFG Latin American Art Award Pinta PArC 2022 is Ductile I by Ximena Garrido Lecca from the 80m2 Livia Benavides gallery. At Pinta Miami, marking the end of the 2022 fair circuit, the winner of the EFG award will be announced, selected from among the fairs SP Arte, Pinta PArC, arteBA, Ch.ACO and ArtBo.
