Crafting Modernity:
Design in Latin America
1940–1980

The Museum of Modern Art presents Crafting Modernity: Design in Latin America, 1940–1980, the first exhibition by a major American museum to examine modern design in the region on a broad scale.

On view from March 8 through September 22, 2024, the exhibition focuses on six countries—Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Venezuela—that spearheaded the development of modern domestic design in Latin America.

Through more than 100 objects, including furniture, graphic design, textiles, ceramics, and photography, drawn from MoMA’s collection and from public and private collections across the US, Latin America, and Europe, the exhibition demonstrates how the field of design in Latin America provides a valuable platform for examining and understanding larger political, social, and cultural transformations in the region.

Crafting Modernity: Design in Latin America, 1940–1980 is organized by Ana Elena Mallet, guest curator, and Amanda Forment, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Architecture and Design, The Museum of Modern Art.
