Tuesday, May 5th, 2015 Program: 6 – 7:30 PM and Reception: 7:30 – 8 PM

Latin American Modernism at Risk will explore the preservation challenges–including changing economies, modernization, and development–being faced by modern buildings and sites in Latin America today. Using a selection of World Monuments Watch sites in Latin America featured in the exhibition Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955-1980 at the Museum of Modern Art, the scholars and experts who know the sites best will examine their significance and the threats to their survival. This program is made possible by the David Davies & Jack Weeden Fund with special thanks to: American Express Founding Sponsor, World Monuments Watch, Fondo Mixto de Promoción Turística del Distrito Federal, Ciudad de México, Fundación Amistad, and The Museum of Modern Art.
