Mana Pinto is an interdisciplinary artist and cultural producer born and raised in Panama. She acquired a degree in Psychology and Visual Arts with a concentration in mixed media. Interested in promoting the work of emerging Latin American artists, she is co-founder and president of Arte Nómada––an art collective in Panama dedicated to showcasing work by emerging artists in temporary art exhibitions within abandoned spaces. Currently living in New York, Mana works at PROXYCO Gallery, an artspace focused on exhibiting work by emerging and mid-career contemporary artists from Latin America. She has assisted and collaborated at La Salita, a curatorial project dedicated to highlighting the work of emerging and established artists across Latin America, as well as Latinx and immigrants working within the U.S., and was a Public Programs intern at El Museo del Barrio. As an artist, she is focused on the relationship between natural environments and human-made structures. She sees between these two elements a violence that leads to the decline of the inorganic, thus exploring the fragility of what we build. Mana is interested in exploring themes of urban spaces, humidity and memory. She has participated in several group shows with her works on paper and films in Panama, New York (NY), San Francisco (CA), and Princeton (NJ).
