Prof’s drawing chosen for prestigious Texas gallery exhibition

Alejandro Borges

A drawing by Alejandro Borges, an architecture faculty member at Texas A&M, is part of a June 22 – July 20 group exhibit at Artspace 111, one of the most prestigious galleries in Texas. 

Borges’ drawing, which is from his Sublimation Series, attempts to investigate the integration of art and architecture in a symbiotic relationship. The drawing is one of over 60 other pieces in the 6th Annual Artspace 111 Regional Juried Exhibition, juried by Hilde Nelson, which will celebrate the breadth of creativity and contemporary artistic expressions in Texas.

The opening reception of the exhibition will be held on June 22 from 5 - 8:30 p.m. at Artspace 111, located at 111 Hampton St. in Fort Worth.

In his submitted work and other paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures and installations, Borges explores design concepts such as light, shadow, projection and transformation in a series of dichotomies such as order vs. chaos and conscious vs. unconscious states.

Widely published in publications throughout the world, his art has been part of numerous solo and collective exhibitions.

Borges counts urban and industrial design among his academic interests. He earned an undergraduate degree at Universidad Central de Venezuela in 1989 and a Master of Architecture degree at Cornell University in 1994.
