Free admission. Prior registration is required.

Join coeditors Erica Roberts and Facundo de Zuviría, along with curator Gabriela Rangel, for a conversation on the book series Ciudades de América (R&Z Editores), moderated by independent editor Donna Wingate. The series consists of four volumes dedicated to Buenos Aires, Montevideo, Cartagena de Indias, and Rio de Janeiro. Each book features photographs by de Zuviría that focus on the city landscapes, interior spaces, and textures and colors. Interspersed with the images are texts by such recognized writers as Gabriel García Márquez, Eduardo Galeano, Jorge Luis Borges, Julio Cortázar, and Vinicius de Moraes, among others. Presenting a local perspective rather a tourist’s viewpoint, Ciudades de América provides an intimate view of these emblematic Latin American cities. 

Learn about the exhibition Facundo de Zuviría: Siesta Argentina and other modest observations.
