New website

The Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC) announces the launch of a new bilingual (English/Spanish) platform for its digital presence, In keeping with the mission of the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, this new site is designed to be a platform for ideas, a forum for debate, and a catalyst for the expansion of interest in the contributions of Latin America to the world of art and culture. The site’s ambition is discovery, and its goal is to weave an expansive and multi-lingual network of people and ideas, both online and in the real world.
The website brings a journalistic approach to the coverage of the field, with new content added on a regular basis. Working together with an international network of contributors, the CPPC website showcases Latin American art and culture in a variety of formats. Its dynamic content is conceptualized in partnership with El Tigre Production, a boutique media production and consulting company whose work combines narrative and documentary filmmaking strategies with visual art. The website was designed by the award-winning design studio Bluecadet. Users have access to video, audio, photography, and text, with opportunities to respond to content and engage in dialogue.
Content categories within include:
Debates—a public forum on issues shaping the field
- Cite, Site, Sights—dispatches on Latin American art and culture
Artists’ Cities—places to visit and things to experience, see through the eyes of artists
In Their Words—first-time translations of existing texts
- Open Storage—an inside look  at the collection
- Statements—observations and opinions about art and ideas
There is also information about the CPPC’s collections, exhibitions, and publications; news about its activities; and updates about its Seminario,  an annual initiative for the interdisciplinary study of modern and contemporary art and culture, particularly that of Latin America.

About the CPPC
The CPPC fosters international dialogue about Latin American art and ideas through collecting, publication, research, programming and advocacy. By these means, we initiate and support new research, frameworks and narratives about Latin American culture that locate it within a global context.
Founded in the 1970s by Patricia Phelps de Cisneros and Gustavo A. Cisneros, the CPPC is based in New York City and Caracas. Its mission is to enhance appreciation of the diversity, sophistication, and range of art from Latin America, and to advance scholarship of Latin American art. The CPPC achieves these goals through the preservation, presentation, and study of the material culture of the Ibero-American world—ranging from the ethnographic to the contemporary.

CPPC activities include exhibitions, publications, grants for scholarly research and artistic production, as well as other innovative initiatives specially designed to create communities for discussion and reflection.
