The Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC), in collaboration with the Museo Amparo in Puebla, Mexico, presents the exhibition Portadores de sentido—Contemporary Art from the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, on view at the Museo Amparo from February 9 to July 22, 2019.
Portadores de sentido brings together 70 contemporary artists from 16 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean whose works were acquired by the CPPC between 1990 and 2015. The exhibition is curated by Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, former Curator of Contemporary Art at the CPPC and now the Director of the Witte de With Contemporary Art Center in Rotterdam. Sara Meadows, Project Manager at the CPPC, is the Assistant Curator for this exhibition.
A number of the artists included in Portadores de sentido have made short audio recordings in which they discuss their works on view. These are accessible in the gallery via cellphone through a link printed on the associated wall label, and on this page.
An exhibition guide will be published including images and didactic texts representing all the work in Portadores de sentido. It will be available for purchase at the Museo Amparo.
