SuperPuesto is a temporary pavilion by Terence Gower commissioned by The Bronx Museum of the Arts in collaboration with the Andrew Freedman Home for Beyond the Supersquare, 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.

SuperPuesto applies the sharp, clean forms of modernist architecture to the rudimentary building technology of the puesto, the traditional market stalls found throughout Latin America that have become the face of the informal economies prevalent in the region. Drawing from the iconic form of Marcel Breuer’s House in the Museum Garden, a commissioned structure exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art’s sculpture garden in 1949, SuperPuesto explores the connections between the European-influenced modernist movement that emerged in Latin America after 1945, and the informal economic systems that contrast the progressive ideals promoted in the region during this period.
