The 10th edition of LOOP fair took place in Hotel Catalonia Ramblas from may 31 to june 2, 2012

The great novelty for this year edition is the Curated Section in LOOP, aimed at offering in the frame of the fair a particular, personal and exclusive exploration of a contemporary subject by the hand of a professional.

This first edition will be curated by brasilian curator and editor Paula Alzugaray, who is making a selection of Latin American artists, pieces and galleries which reflect on the intimate relations between sex/violence/afectivity/criminality in the territory, in order to unravel the particularities of the artistic production while establishing links and abridging distances with professionals from the territory.

She is the process of getting a PhD in Communication and Semiotics at Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo (PUC-SP).
