ARTisSpectrum | Volume 31 |
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. The exhibition is co-organized
by Holly Block (New York City) and María Inés
Rodríguez (Colombia), and designed by Benedeta
Monteverde (Mexico).
