“Fortunate Objects: Selections from the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection” is an exhibition showcasing contemporary art inspired by everyday objects. It features works by artists such as Ai Weiwei, Damien Hirst and José Antonio Hernández-Diez. Fortunate Objects is structured around three main themes: the appropriated object, the surrogate object, and the object utilized. “Fortunate Objects proposes a playful, imaginative, curious and unexpected approach to objects used in daily life,” said Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, Chief Curator of the Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation (CIFO) and the curator for the exhibition. “This show celebrates and investigates the nature of the objects surrounding us, and in doing so, encourages us to reexamine our environment and ourselves.” Miami, Florida, December 14, 2007.
