Arts in the Humanities Lecture Series: Architecture as a Media

Houston, Texas, USA
Having trained as an architect and subsequently studying for his Master’s of Fine Arts in Painting from the Pratt Institute in New York, Gabriel de la Mora’s work lies in questioning and experimenting with the interstitial limits between painting, drawing and sculpture.
In his hands, these original media of symbolic experience become records prone to formalist abstraction, as well as autobiographical indices. Linking constructivist languages with the evocative, fortuitous discoveries of dadaist experience de la Mora updates the minimalist/conceptual optic to reveal the intimate and personal within the universal convention of modernist abstraction.
Gabriel de la Mora lives and works in Mexico City, Mexico. De la Mora has shown in many group and solo exhibits in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, Russia, France, Austria, China, Korea, and Spain, and his work is in numerous public and private collections.
The Arts in the Humanities Lecture Series is generously supported by the Jerome J. Segal Endowment in the Department of Visual and Dramatic Arts and the Dean of the School of Humanities. This event is free and open to the public.
