Professionally educating future art collectors.


Maria Napoles

The Latin American Art Pavilion, (LAAP), offers ongoing professional support to mid-career Latin American artists, orienting them with regard to the right steps to create a potential niche for sales to selected groups of collectors, and to insert themselves into the global art market (particularly Latin American contemporary art).

LAAP's founder, María Nápoles, has a vast and comprehensive knowledge of business and art. Her professional background includes many years of experience as an executive of global companies such as Volkswagen of America, and as Executive Director of the  Latin American Art Fair, in addition to the creation and development of her own companies focusing on a variety of different fields. Maria serves as ambassador for the African American Fund at the PAMM museum and supports Caribbean projects from different Islands including Cuba, curated by a Cuban curator. The group provides art of emerging artists opportunities with competitive adjusted prices from the art market for developers, real state, and interior design industry. 


After many years of working in the field of art, Maria's passion for art has inspired this need to develop a concept that envisages providing artists with platforms to exhibit their work and opening up a space for its diffusion and potential sales​, including publications in magazines, a professional website, a sales team, catalogues, and above all, the contribution of a professional curator with an extensive career.
