Americas Society presents The Metropolis in Latin America, 1830-1930, an exhibition that explores how a century of accelerated urbanization as well as political and social change, transformed the architectural landscapes of Buenos Aires, Havana, Lima, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, and Santiago de Chile. Curated by Idurre Alonso and Maristella Casciato, Metropolis will be on view at Americas Society from March 22-June 30.
This exhibition has been organized by The Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles, and was previously on view as part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA at the Getty Center (September 16, 2017-January 7, 2018).
Metropolis documents how, over the course of one century, Latin American cities experienced rapid growth and sociopolitical turmoil that resulted in crucial modifications to city scale and architectural landscapes, creating the prime conditions for the emergence of the metropolis. It features rare maps, engravings, drawings, photographs, books, and videos that range from Hernán Cortés’ map of Tenochtitlán (1524) to Le Corbusier’s sketches made during his visit to Buenos Aires (1929).
Associated public programs include book launches on April 3 and April 13 and panel discussions on April 11 and May 10. Find out more about Americas Society’s public programs.
Hours: Wednesday-Saturday, 12-6pm. Free admission.
