The Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO) is proud to announce Fleeting Imaginaries as this year’s Grants & Commissions Program exhibition. As it is customary, the winners are part of the annual exhibition dedicated to the program at the CIFO Art Space. This year’s exhibition will be open to the public from September 5 through November 2.

The 12th edition of CIFO’s Grants & Commissions Program features works by emerging artists  Pablo Accinelli (Argentina), Nayarí Castillo (Venezuela), Marcellvs L. (Brazil), Carlos Martiel (Cuba), Mateo Pizarro (Colombia), Adrián Regnier (Mexico) and mid-career artists Claudia Joskowicz (Bolivia) and Rosângela Rennó (Brazil). Also, for the first time since the inception of the program, two artists were simultaneously chosen for the prestigious Achievement Award: Teresa Burga (Peru) and Antonieta Sosa (Venezuela).

The title of the exhibition refers to the development of that which is imagined and the symbolic production of shared images.  Although we are accustomed to identifying images that correspond with one specific culture or identity as if they were each clearly differentiated, in reality,  imaginaries in themselves are uncertain entities: that which “we do not know or are about to know.” The proposals for CIFO’s 2014 Grants & Commissions Program exhibition have been gathered under the redundancy of this title to highlight this aspect that is a common ground among them: the idea of ​​continuous displacement that transpires in different ways. 

The CIFO Grants & Commissions Program offers emerging, mid-career and established contemporary Latin American Artists the opportunity to develop and present new work to both local and international audiences in Miami. Each year, the artists are nominated by CIFO’s Honorary Advisory Committee of leading art professionals, curators and artists from around the world.

Since 2012 CIFO has partnered with Cannonball, an Artist Residency based in Downtown Miami, to award one of the artists in the Grants & Commissions Program with a two-month residency. CIFO’s Board of Directors has selected Carlos Martiel, from Cuba for the 2014 residency.
