The change is most stark in cities like New York, Detroit, and Los Angeles that have had Street View since its launch in 2007, and have a full six years of maps to parse through.

The exhibit, which runs through January 11, 2014, features the work of more than 30 contemporary artists whose photography, videos, sculptures, and drawings respond to modern Latin American architecture through the prism of unique political, social, and environmental challenges. It is the product of four years of research by the museum’s executive director, Holly Block, and María Inés Rodríguez, director of the CAPC Musée D’Art Contemporain de Bordeaux.
