MADRID.- The Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation is presenting SinCrónicas. Horizons of Peruvian Contemporary Art from the Collecting Perspective, an exhibition of contemporary Peruvian art drawn from the collections of Ella FontanalsCisneros and the Peruvian art collectors Armando Andrade de Lucio, Carlos Marsano, Alberto and Ginette Rebaza and Juan Carlos Verme Giannoni, from February 22 – March 22, 2019 at El Instante Fundación. The exhibition coincides with ARCOmadrid, and it is a response to the selection of Peru as the “guest nation” for ARCOmadrid 2019. The exhibit is a CIFO Europe initiative and has been organized by Peruvian curator Max Hernández Calvo.

SinCrónicas. Horizons of Peruvian Contemporary Art from the Collecting Perspective features works by contemporary Peruvian artists including Armando Andrade Tudela, Christian Bendayán, Alberto Borea, Fernando Bryce, Alberto Casari, Elena Damiani, Jorge Eduardo Eielson, Sandra Gamarra, José Carlos Martinat, Wynnie Mynerva, Rita Ponce de León, Ishmael Randall-Weeks, Sandra Salazar, Giancarlo Scaglia, and Elena Tejada-Herrera, among others.

“From the collecting perspective, this exhibition depicts several key themes in contemporary Peruvian art, whose prefiguration took place in Peru in the late 20th century: the disputed territories; the daily tales and its diverse struggles; the body as testimony and as a defense of difference, and a reflexive abstraction that focuses in processes and materials,” said curator Max Hernández Calvo.

“It is an honor for CIFO and The Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection to participate in this very important collaboration between Latin-American collectors,” said Ella Fontanals-Cisneros. “This is just the beginning of a project that includes a donation of part of my collection and the development of a LatinAmerican museum in Madrid where there will be a space for artists and collectors of each country from Latin America.”

El Instante Fundación was founded in Madrid in 2017 with a mission to carry out a reflection on the present time in our lives through different practices, such as science and art. With the aim of collaborating with other foundations and institutions to develop various projects, El Instante Fundación presents exhibitions of visual arts while hosting talks on cultural and scientific issues, screenings, theater, musical sessions and a residency program for artists in various disciplines.
