There are five areas of deep focus within the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros: modernist geometric abstraction from Latin America; artworks and documentation of traveler artists who explored and worked in Latin America and the Caribbean during the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries; ethnographic objects from and documentation of twelve of the indigenous tribes from the Orinoco river basin in Venezuela’s state of Amazonas; material culture from Latin America’s colonial era; and contemporary art from Latin America and beyond.
