The Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros from Venezuela will present a collection of works that seek to materialize some of the numerous points of contact that can be found between the most representative artists from Latin America and the broad artistic traditions of Europe and the United States. Finally, Félix Ángel, Director and Curator of the Inter American Development Bank (IDB) Cultural Center in Washington DC will display art in a variety of techniques, trends and tendencies representing the talent of the artists from the member countries of the IDB, with emphasis on Latin America and the Caribbean and its economic and social reality.
