CIFO: Una Mirada Múltiple

Selecciones de la Colección Ella Fontanals-Cisneros

Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes de la Habana, Cuba │ May 12 - August 20, 2012


Curated by Osbel Suárez.


One of CIFO Europa’s initiatives will be the organization of CIFO: Una Mirada Múltiple. Selections from the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection and its presentation at the Museo Nacional de Bella Artes in Havana, Cuba. Curated by Osbel Suárez, the exhibition will coincide with the 11th Havana Biennial, taking place from May 11th – June 11th, 2012, and will remain open to the public through August 20, 2012. This exhibit marks the first time a complete exhibition containing works from the contemporary art holdings of the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection are exhibited outside of CIFO’s walls.


The exhibition, CIFO: Una Mirada Múltiple, does not adopt the usual chronological approach of organizing the pieces according to their dates, which range from the second half of the twentieth century to the present day. Instead, it showcases a cross section of the collection and presents to the public a compilation of works by over 65 artists from North America, Latin America, Africa, Europe and Asia, who have witnessed and played key roles in changes that have occurred in the most significant trends in art over the last fifty years.
