Circa 09 International Art Fair (April 16-20)

Posted on 31 July 2009 by GSV

Beginning on Thursday, April 16, the Puerto Rico Convention Center becomes the focal point of the art world when it opens its doors to Circa 09.  Celebrating its 4th edition, this international art fair has become one of the Caribbean/Central America region’s most important gatherings of artists, galleries, collectors, and aficionados.  Circa’s main goal is to offer an organized, intimate space for promoting modern/contemporary art while capitalizing on Puerto Rico’s rich and diverse surroundings, as well as its thriving art collection scene.

The main program features cutting-edge works from hundreds of up-and-coming artists presented by local and international galleries such as the Galería 356 (San Juan),  Walter Otero (San Juan), Samson Projects (Boston), Espacio Mínimo (Madrid), and LMAK Projects (NYC).  Solo exhibitions involving different mediums – painting, photography, video, installation, etc. – will also be featured, selected from an open call by event curators. Additionally, the Circa Labs located outside the main pavilion will host experimental gatherings from other artists.

    I just wanted to thank you very much for this informative article. I have already bookmarked your site, when I have more free time I am going to have to do some further research. Well back to my dreaming of Panama or back to the books – I wonder which one is going to win out. :)

    Thank you for writing us! We are glad you enjoyed the article and invite you to visit us again soon. Good luck with your studies and we hope next time you dream about Puerto Rico – someplace like Playa Zoní in Culebra Island off the coast of Fajardo (Puerto Rico’s east coast). The video is coming soon!
