The current exhibition at CIFO is titled: The Prisoner’s Dilemma: Selections from the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection. The show is curated by Leanne Mella, a contemporary art curator, specializing in American artist’s work in film, video, performance, photography and new media. The works in this exhibition comment upon, confront and challenge strategies of totalizing power and social control. Among the works on display are Stan Douglas’ Mess Hall, Isla de Pinos (2005), Alexandre Arrechea’s El Espacio Alterado (2004), and Barbara Kruger’s Untitled (We are the Objects of Your Suave Entrapments), 1984.
Miami Art Exchange founder and editor Onajidé Shabaka spoke with Leanne Mella about the exhibition at the occasion of the Opening Brunch at CIFO, Miami / Florida, on December 5, 2008.
