Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico and The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center in Italy are proud to announce that Latin American artists Lola Arias, Ricardo Domínguez, Kleber Mendonça, Manuela Ribadeneira, Alfredo Rugeles and Alvaro Sarmiento have been selected to participate in the prestigious Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center Arts & Literary Arts Residency next year.
This is the second year Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo and The Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center have come together in their support of mid-to late-career artists from Latin America to create opportunities for international dialogue and exposure through the Bellagio Center Residency program.
Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo is honored to be considered again by the Rockefeller Foundation as their established partner for the next two years, to carry out the preselection process for Latin American candidates.
The collaboration builds upon Fundación Jumex’s generous and longstanding Grants and Scholarships Program, created by Eugenio López Alonso, to support artists and organizations committed to production, research and promotion of contemporary art. Over the past ten years, Fundación Jumex’s impact has reached beyond artistic circuits to broader communities and institutions.
