The MNBA Arts opens on 11 June at 7 pm. "The American time" curated by Roberto Amigo and Alberto Petrina.

The presence of the Andean themes in Argentine art between 1910 and 1950, is the expression of Americanism and the aesthetic and ideological power of cultural nationalism. The main groups developed under the influence of Ricardo Rojas, archaeological expeditions, the Inca imaginary and nativist painting in the National Museum, Andean artists in Buenos Aires, the styles of the thirties and forties and the beginning of provincial schools, (which allowed modern artists to journey and discover the Andean culture). The period thus represents a tour from Indianism and nativism to indigenism.
In addition to painting, drawing, sculpture and architectural projects, the exhibition displays magazines, books, catalogs, film and classical and popular music. The exhibits come from public and private collections in Buenos Aires, La Plata, Rosario, Santa Fe Jujuy, Tilcara, Humahuaca, Bariloche.
