MIAMI.- To continue with CIFO's ongoing collaboration with other cultural organizations, the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation and the Spanish Cultural Center present a collection of 35 pieces by the well-known Spanish photographer and photojournalist Isabel Muñoz, on view from September 3 through October 5, 2008 at CIFO Art Space. Other past successful partnerships include The Rhythm Foundation, The Jackson Memorial, The Children's Trust Miami, Creative Children Therapy and Nicolas Felizola.

The works focus on dance as a mechanism of liberation to escape moral repression on traditional society. The images, all of them in black and white, aim to tell a story on the body's condition in our society. They explain a context in which dance, has been for both men and women a way of expressing understated matters, unthinkable thoughts and a vehicle to express ourselves in a different fashion within the same context beyond artistic expression.

In this selection, Muñoz gathers the testimony of several years of work in which she has been all over the world with her camera and has taken advantage to give testimony of the great passion she has for dance. This turns the show into a true retrospective of the artist's work. A selection that summarizes the content of previous works of the photographer from Barcelona, Spain on tango in Buenos Aires, flamenco in Spain or oriental dance in Turkey or Egypt.

The pictures, taken in places from Burkina Fasso to Irán, and Cuba to Buenos Aires, play to confuse the male and female body, highlighting the most characteristic gestures of every place.

Isabel Muñoz has been a photographer for more than 20 years and she is one of the biggest names in contemporary Spanish photography. Her work is present is the most prestigious art institutions of the world such as the Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston. She has 10 published books and many articles published and is a two time World Press Photo award recipient.
