Sumario: This article aims to address the problems of the American identity, with regard to the exhibition entitled La hora americana presented at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires. On the basis of a theoretical framework Deleuzian, according to which the art is intended to appeal to the constitution of a people, and linking it with the concepts of the smelly and the cultural phagocytosis proposed by Rodolfo Kusch (2007), we will established heterogeneity as a fundamental element of the Americanist identity. This will take into account the diversity of the works presented in the exhibition, with parti- cular emphasis on two of them, Eva Perón. Arquetipo símbolo of Sesostris Vitullo and Jujuy of Antonio Berni. In them, it will be possible to study the intersection between a Western cultural dimension and another American, where the past and the future are disseminated in an uncertain space which, at the time that makes the works possible, requires a specific position by the spectator.
