Unsaid/Spoken, Selections from the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros and CIFO includes about 38 pieces by 24 artists from different generations and latitudes, who share a common experience of promoting and transforming art practices.
According to CIFO’s Curatorial Award recipients Moacir dos Anjos and José Roca, “this exhibition brings together work that testifies to the tension between what is yet to be said (or cannot be uttered) and the aftermath of communication, when all has been said and done. Silenced speech, timid elocutions, unintelligible languages, unknown codes, forgotten tongues, the somewhat obscure discourse of science, censorship, and repression, slowly give way to murmurs, connections, bridges, open conversations and conclusive statements. Following an intuitive process of formal association and conceptual juxtaposition, the show intends to be seen as an exercise in curatorial collaboration.”
