Displaying Latin America

Exhibitions are central to the history of architecture. The modern architecture of Latin America made its international debut with several national pavilions in the 1939 New York World's Fair, the most famous being that of Brazil, as part of cultural and economic policies that addressed the need to be part of a modern world. This seminar studies multiple sites and strategies of displaying Latin America through architecture. It examines the cultural institutions (museums, ministries, universities, biennials) and engages the actors (architects, historians, cultural impresarios) that mobilized architecture to imagine the nation and the region.
