Organized by the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC), the Seminario Fundación Cisneros was created to encourage the multidisciplinary study of culture and modern and contemporary art, with an emphasis on Latin American art. Based in Caracas and New York, the CPPC is part of the Fundación Cisneros, and its mission is to promote a better appreciation of Latin American art and the formation of professionals in the art world. Since its start in 2011, Seminario Fundación Cisneros has been an intense, one day event presented in Caracas, Venezuela.
