The Bronx Museum of the Arts

Beyond the Supersquare explores the indelible influence of Latin American and Caribbean modernist architecture on contemporary art. The exhibition features 30 artists and more than 60 artworks, including photography, video, sculpture, installation, and drawing, that respond to major Modernist architectural projects constructed in Latin America and the Caribbean from the 1920s through the 1960s. Beyond the Supersquare examines the complicated legacies of modernism through architecture and thought—as embodied by the political, economic, environmental, and social challenges faced by countries throughout Latin America—through the unique perspective of artists working today. This exhibition is co-organized by Holly Block (New York City) and María Inés Rodríguez (Colombia), and designed by Benedeta Monteverde (Mexico).



Featured artists include Leonor Antunes (Portugal), Alexander Apóstol (Venezuela), Alexandre Arrechea (Cuba), Felipe Arturo (Colombia), Alessandro Balteo Yazbeck (Venezuela), Los Carpinteros (Cuba), Jordi Colomer (Spain), Livia Corona (Mexico), Fernanda Fragateiro (Portugal), Carlos Garaicoa (Cuba), Quisqueya Henríquez (Dominican Republic), Andre Komatsu (Brazil), Runo Lagomarsino (Argentina), Daniela Ortiz (Peru), Manuel Pina (Cuba), Ishmael Randall-Weeks (Peru), Mauro Restiffe (Brazil), Pedro Reyes (Mexico), and more. SuperPuesto is a new public artwork by Terence Gower commissioned for Beyond the Supersquare that will be built in the garden of the Andrew Freedman Home. With the goal of providing an immersive space for visitors to experience the exhibition’s artistic and architectural themes, SuperPuesto will also serve as an annex for educational and public programs.
