The Museum of Modern Art will present the new exhibition Chosen Memories: Contemporary Latin American Art from the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Gift and Beyond at The Museum of Modern Art on display April 30th through September 9th.

Chosen Memories: Contemporary Latin American Art from the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Gift and Beyond is a major exhibition that gathers approximately 65 works by Latin American artists who, over the last four decades, have looked at history as the source material for new work. On view in the third-floor Robert B. Menschel Galleries, this exhibition focuses on late-20th and early-21st century artworks from the transformative gifts made by the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros to the Museum over the last 25 years. Videos, photographs, paintings, and sculptures are presented in dialogue with MoMA’s extensive Latin American collection, recent acquisitions, a new commission, and select loans. Chosen Memories features works by approximately 40 artists from different generations working across Latin America over the last four decades, including Alejandro Cesarco (Uruguay), Regina José Galindo (Guatemala), Mario García Torres (Mexico), Leanrdo Katz (Argentina), Suwon Lee (Venezuela), Gilda Mantilla (Peru) and Raimond Chaves (Colombia), Cildo Meireles (Brazil), Rosângela Rennó (Brazil), Mauro Restiffe (Brazil), and José Alejandro Restrepo (Colombia), among others.
