Synopsis for Uncovering the Invisible at City Hall, London

By Boris Johnson, The Mayor of London

From business to restaurants and tango to samba, London's Latin American communities are having a significant impact on the life of our city, economically, socially and culturally.

'Uncovering the Invisible' offers a fascinating insight into their diversity, underpinning historic ties that saw the likes of Simon Bolivar, Francisco de Miranda and Jose de San Martin hone their ideas for revolution and independence here and our city's strengthening economic links with emerging economies of that vast continent.

With the FIFA World Cup in Brazil this summer and the Rio Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2016, this exhibition is also timely. As the biggest soccer tournament in the world gets underway, I hope as many Londoners as possible will visit City Hall to see these pictures, as part of what I am sure will be lively and colourful celebrations throughout the capital.
