Focusing on the international expositions that took place in Buenos Aires in 1882 and 1910, this article reveals and analyzes the discourses on Argentine national identity at national and international level. Art criticism was used as an agency for the redefinition of the nature and character of the Argentine in the context of local, regional, and European centers of economic and cultural power. The analysis is based on key primary material and informed by insights derived from social history and postcolonial theory. It offers a stimulating perspective on constructs of modernity in Latin America, on the relationships between center and periphery, and on art in the Argentine between 1882 and 1910.
