Major Cisneros donation includes work by José Gabriel Fernández
Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, an important collector of contemporary Latin American art, has included works by José Gabriel Fernández in a donation to various cultural institutions, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid.
Around 200 works in total, by 91 artists from 22 countries, are joining the collections of six major museums, which have each demonstrated a dedication to presenting contemporary Latin American art. This unique and unprecedented donation sees the selection of works tailored to each institution via its respective curatorial interests. “We have always seen ourselves as temporary custodians of the objects in our care, and we feel that finding permanent homes for them is an integral aspect of our mission,” Phelps de Cisneros has said.
