The Daros-Latinamerica Collection, initiated in 2000, is based in Zürich, Switzerland. It currently includes the artwork of more than one hundred contemporary artists from Latin American countries, a region that stretches from the Mexican/U.S.A. border to Tierra del Fuego at the southern tip of South America in Chile. The in-progress collection concentrates on artwork primarily created in the last 20 years, with some key examples included from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.

Certain Encounters: Daros-Latinamerica Collection showcases the work of twenty artists who either live or have lived in Latin America. The Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery previously has presented several exhibitions by Cuban artists. This exhibition, which represents the curation of an already selected body of work, emphasizes three areas: abstract, perceptual work from the 1960s and 1970s; conceptual language-based work from the 1970s and 1980s; and more overtly social/political work from the past two decades.

Certain Encounters includes work by Carmelo Arden Quin, Fernando Arias, Waltercio Caldas, Luis Camnitzer, Iván Jesús Capote Puentes, Lygia Clark, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Antonio Dias, Juan Manuel Echavarría, León Ferrari, Jorge Macchi, Teresa Margolles, Ana Mendieta, Vik Muniz, Oscar Muñoz, Hélio Oiticica, Manuel Piña, Nelson Ramos, Lázaro Saavedra, and Santiango Sierra.
