Plural Domains: Selected Works from the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO) Collection
September 9, 2021 – April 24, 2022
Plural Domains is drawn exclusively from the collection of the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO), a non-profit organization founded in 2002 by Ella Fontanals-Cisneros to foster cultural exchange and enrichment of the arts. The foundation’s mission is to support and advance cultural understanding and educational dialogue among Latin American artists and global audiences. Since its inception, CIFO has shaped one of the most extensive and substantial programs of contemporary Latin American art. Plural Domains features photography, drawing, video, sculpture, and large-scale multimedia installations by 21 established, mid-career, and emerging artists from 9 countries: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. Many of the artists are immersed in a range of multidisciplinary or hybrid practices in which both traditional and the most innovative methods come together, as they incorporate into their work the infinite variety of resources that constitute the repertoire of contemporary art. Plural Domains is curated by Jesús Fuenmayor, Program Director & Visiting Curator at University Galleries, School of Art + Art History, University of Florida. The University Gallery will host a corollary exhibition of works drawn from the CIFO collection.
