Since our inception, publications have been one of the highest priorities for the Fundacion Cisneros/Coleccion Patricia Phelps de Cisneros. From exhibition catalogs in the early 2000s documenting the collection's extensive program, to important monographs such as the award-winning Gego: Complete Works (2003), our publications have remained rigorously consistent with our mission of supporting scholarly research and a deeper understanding of Latin American art.
The bilingual Conversaciones/Conversations series, launched by the Fundación Cisneros/Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros in 2010, is dedicated to preserving firsthand accounts from leading Latin American artists and intellectuals.
Responding to the urgent need to compile primary-sourced information on the historical and contemporary conditions in Latin American art, this illustrated series of reading books features dynamic, in-depth dialogue between artists and their interlocutors.
The Conversaciones/Conversations e-book series—a joint collaboration between CPPC and MAPP Editions, UK—disseminates these important publications in a digital format. These e-book versions contain exciting features such as video and audio recordings that bring the artist’s voice to life; previously unpublished and rare materials; zoom/detail functions; and newly commissioned materials exclusive to the electronic editions, among many other enhancements.
