Beyond the Super Square: The Architecture Challenge!

This evening of game and celebration is conceived by artist Pedro Reyes, organized by the Bronx Museum of the Arts, in collaboration with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics

by The New School

Beyond the Super Square: On the Corner of Art & Architecture was a three-day conference and publication designed to draw attention to an important historical period of modernist architectural production in Latin America and the Caribbean that, 40 years later, continues to resonate among many contemporary artists. Opening on October 28, 2011, the conference contextualizes the impact of modernist architecture throughout these regions through a series of panels and presentations by scholars, urban planners, students, and contemporary artists, and strives to enrich the dialogue on Latin American architectural tradition, a topic rarely discussed in the United States. In lieu of a traditional opening night lecture, Eva Franch i Gilabert, Director of Storefront for Art and Architecture, and artist Pedro Reyes inaugurates the conference with the first ever Architecture Challenge! Our charming hosts put the conference participants to test and grill them on the most obscure architectural facts.
