About This Item

Ella Fontanals-Cisneros

As is tradition at the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO), each year during Art Basel Miami Beach they present the most significant exhibition in their annual program, a selection of works from the collection that reflects the vision of two guest curators. The year 2013 was particularly important because it marked the first collaboration between CIFO and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The exhibition focuses on the past five decades, a period which has received too little scholarly attention, while also analyzing the relevance of the context that the artists come from.

Permission To be Global/Prácticas Globales: Latin American Art from the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection is a fully illustrated catalogue, published by CIFO, with entries on all featured works and an introductory conversation by exhibition MFA curators Jen Mergel (Robert L. Beal, Bruce A. Beal, and Enid L. Beal Senior Curator of Contemporary Art) and Liz Munsell (Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art & MFA Programs), in consultation with Jésus Fuenmayor, Director and Chief Curator of CIFO.

Ella Fontanals-Cisneros is a philanthropist, entrepreneur and art collector whose vision has made a lasting impact on the Miami arts community and global arts organizations. Born in Cuba and raised in Venezuela, Fontanals-Cisneros began collecting works by artists from Latin America in 1970 and has grown her collection over the years to include video, photography, geometric abstraction and contemporary art by artists from around the world.
