Beyond the Super Square: On the Corner of Art & Architecture is a three-day conference 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, 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 inaugurate the conference with the first ever Architecture Challenge! Our charming hosts challenge our conference participants by grilling them on the most obscure architectural facts. This evening of game and celebration is conceived by Reyes and organized by the Bronx Museum of the Arts, in collaboration with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics.
