Cecilia Brunson Projects (CBP) was founded in 2013 to increase the visibility and understanding of Latin American artists and their role in global art movements. The gallery uncovers overlooked Latin American artists’ estates; supports contemporary Latin American artists; and introduces historical and contemporary Latin American art, not shown before in Europe, to a global audience. This mission is centred around an exhibition programme at CBP’s gallery space in Bermondsey, London.
CBP has established a reputation for introducing London audiences to some of the major figures of modern and contemporary Latin American art, including Waltercio Caldas, Willys de Castro, Coco Fusco, and Alfredo Volpi. The gallery has also uncovered the careers of pivotal 20th century artists, such as Feliciano Centurión and Victor Magariños D.. Exhibiting these artists’ work in London for the first time and caring for their estates, CBP has reinserted key figures back into a global narrative of 20th century art. In 2018, three of CBP’s artists were featured in the 33rd São Paulo Biennial (Claudia Fontes, Alejandro Corujeira and Feliciano Centurión).
