Ella Fontanals-Cisneros’s private collection is focused on Latin American artists, which is unsurprising, as Fontanals-Cisneros herself was born in Cuba and came of age in Venezuela. The exhibitions are housed in a former boxing gym near the Arts District: a square building that’s significantly spruced up by a stunning tile mural, which creates the illusion of a bamboo forest. Her foundation, for its part, gives annual commissions to mid-career Latin American artists who then become part of group shows at the space. It’s an opportunity that not only exposes them to Miami’s global art community but also gives them space to create their work outside the pressures of the market. Like other private collections in Miami, entry is free.
