About the exhibition:
Beyond the Supersquare brings together a select group of contemporary artists whose insightful work addresses the remnants of the Modern Movement in Latin America and the Caribbean. While the exhibition will address how Modernism defined a number of decisive aspects related to contemporary architecture, urbanism, and art in Latin America, this exhibition will also examine the larger political and social underpinnings of these cultural and environmental developments. Through drawings, photography, sculpture, installation, and video, Beyond the Supersquare presents a series of responses to the aggressive rise of Latin America’s urban centers and the ways in which they have evolved since the mid-twentieth century.
Featured artists include Leonor Antunes (Portugal), Alexander Apostol (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 Henriquez (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. In conjunction with Beyond the Supersquare, artist Terence Gower (Canada), in collaboration with architect Galia Solomonoff (Argentina), has been selected to design Palapa Moderna, an off-site hub for exhibition-related cultural and educational programming located within close proximity to the museum.
