fair in the United States, as well as online promotion opportunities and cash prizes. A panel of juries specialized in Latin American art will review all the entries in search of great talent.
Kevin Quiles Bonilla of Puerto Rico was a 2018 selected artist and he had this to say about the competition:
“Two of my favorites takes from this experience have been: Having my work curated by such influential figures in the New York art scene, and being a part of a show with multiple generations of Latin American artists; artists who have been evolving their practice for 50 years, and young artist like myself that are still learning and developing.”
This is a fantastic opportunity for Latin0 artists at any stage of their careers. There are two categories this year for artists to compete in: Digital Display and Classic Exhibition.
