Overview

Alberto Borea (Lima 1979) lives and works in Berlin, New York City and Lima. Characterized by the continuous displacement and use of diverse media and materials, Alberto Borea’s practice is chiefly concerned with non-places, mapping and identity. By combining language and found objects in his paintings, sculptures and installations, he alters and re - contextualizes their meanings. Borea opens a space for an existential discourse, where poetry, humor and socio- political ideas coexist. He has participated in diverse exhibitions in Europe, Latin America and the U.S. These include Queens International, Queens Museum of Art 2014 / Permission to be Global, Museum of Arts of Boston /We are All Gone, Y Gallery NYC / Museo del Barrio Biennial – The S files NYC /”Impulse , Reason , sense an Conflict” Cisneros Fontanals CIFO Miami/Tracing the unseen Border” curated by Ian Cofre and Omar Lopez Chahoud, LaMammaGallery, New York/ “WestatSunset” AbronsArtsCenter, New York /”PlanetoSlums” curated by LaToya Frazier, Mason Gross Galleries New Jersey / “Dublin Contemporary” curated by Christian Viveros and Jota Castro / We are all gone Y gallery NYC / Mobility and its discontents, curated by Sara Reisman, The 8th floor among ohers.
