An examination of the ways Latin American art responded to the hollow rhetoric of modernization in the period after the World War II, this show examines the efforts of artists such as Elda Cerrato, Juan Guzmán, and Lina Bo Bardi in engaging communities and fostering social awareness through participatory strategies in film, theater, and architecture.
