The proliferation of slums, favelas, and ad-hoc housing on the outskirts of many Latin American cities today amounts to a humanitarian crisis, and is one of the most pressing challenges faced by contemporary architects, planners, and activists. Join a conversation about the origins, meanings, and possible solutions to informal cities. Latin Lab sessions offer an in-depth discussion on issues related to the exhibition Latin American in Construction. Gallery stools are provided.
Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with MoMA’s collection and special exhibitions.
Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required. Groups meet in the Marron Atrium, Floor 2.
FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
