Exhibition Announcement: Museo Universidad de Navarra

October 8, 2021

Patricia Phelps de Cisneros with MUN faculty and students from the Master in Curatorial Studies at Museo Universidad de Navarra on September 28, 2021 during the Master’s thesis defense.

Works from the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros’s (CPPC) donation to the Museo Universidad de Navarra (MUN) in Pamplona, Spain, will be the subject of an exhibition curated by students from the 2021 cohort of the University’s Master in Curatorial Studies. The show will be on view at MUN in the summer of 2022. This exhibition is a product of the 2018 donation of Latin American photography, which proposed the works be studied by students of the Master in Curatorial Studies, the only postgraduate course in Spain for the academic training of art curators.

The exhibition’s framework will be based on one of four fully developed proposals recently presented during the thesis defense of the 2021 Master’s in Curatorial Studies cohort. Shortly, the Museum will carry out a selection process to choose one of the proposals, which have been overseen by Director and professor of the Master’s program Nieves Acedo and professor of the Master’s and Senior Advisor to the CPPC, Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro.

This upcoming exhibition champions the CPPC’s deep commitment to education and continues its tradition of extensive collaboration with universities and their museums including Harvard, NYU, University of Texas at Austin, CUNY Hunter College, and Wheaton College among others.
