featuring artist Alexandre Arrechea and architect Galia Solomonoff. Hosted by Bronx Museum Executive Director Holly Block
Monday, September 29 from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm
Cuban artist Alexandre Arrechea and architect Galia Solomonoff meet in the SuperPuesto with Beyond the Supersquare exhibition co-curator Holly Block for a lively discussion on art and architecture.
Interested in the intersection between art and society, Arrechea’s artistic practice merges architecture, design, and sculpture in unexpected, often humorous ways. Argentinean-born Galia Solomonoff is the founder and Creative Director of Solomonoff Architecture Studio. Solomonoff advised Terence Gower on the SuperPuesto, a temporary pavilion commissioned by The Bronx Museum of the Arts in collaboration with the Andrew Freedman Home for Beyond the Supersquare.
Beyond the Supersquare is the first U.S. museum exhibition to examine the complicated legacies of modernist architecture in Latin America and the Caribbean through the perspectives of 30 contemporary artists. With the goal of providing an immersive space for visitors to experience the exhibition’s artistic and architectural themes, SuperPuesto also serves as an annex for educational and public programs related to Beyond the Supersquare.
