    El Dorado

    April 2023

    Fundación PROA in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Americas Society in New York, United States, and Museo Amparo in Puebla, Mexico, are co-organizing the exhibition "El Dorado" (title under construction) that will open in 2023 in Buenos Aires.

    The exhibition explores the history of El Dorado as the founding myth of the Americas and as a metaphor for the identity of the constantly changing continent. Despite never having been found, El Dorado has existed in American and European imaginations for centuries, acting as a catalyst for a myriad of meanings that continue to shape the continent's cultural production. This exhibition problematizes the myth, its scope and contemporary consequences.

    Organized by: Americas Society, New York - Amparo Museum, Puebla - Proa Foundation, Buenos Aires

    Sponsors: Tenaris - Ternium
