Recommendation for "Smoking Mirror" Exhibit, Museo de los Metales

Definitely go to see Quito artist Eduardo Villacis' "Smoking Mirror" exhibit at the Museo de los Metales. It is an amazing show that far surpassed my expectations. It is based on the speculation about what would have happened if Columbus had been blown off course and landed in Mexico instead of the Caribbean, and was captured by the Aztecs. The exhibit includes painting, illustration, a video, and sculpture, with a big dose of humor. It graphically illustrates how history is written by the victors. It's free and well worth the hour or so that you'll spend in the museum.

Address: Museo de los Metales, Av. Solano 11-83
