Contemporary Art

See highlights from the collection below.
The Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC) actively works to support the work of contemporary artists. This is done through acquisition of artworks, support for residencies, grants to professionals, and educational programming.

The contemporary art nucleus primarily comprises works by Latin American artists. However, it also includes works by artists from other parts of the world, reflecting the global nature of contemporary art production.
