Reinventing the Américas: Construct. Erase. Repeat.

Exhibition Website

Aug 23 2022 - Jan 8 2023

This exhibition analyzes representations of the Americas, questioning the mythologies and utopian visions that proliferated after the arrival of Europeans to the continents. 

Featuring artistic interventions by Denilson Baniwa, an Indigenous contemporary artist from the Amazon region of Brazil, and the voices of local community groups in Los Angeles, Reinventing the Américas counters the views of European chroniclers, illustrators, and printmakers from the sixteenth to nineteenth centuries by offering a multi-perspectival approach.
