Exhibition Overview

Argentinean Jorge Luis Borges is one of the most prominent and profoundly philosophical literary figures of the twentieth century. Sixteen visual artists interpret twelve stories by Borges, organized according to three topics: identity and memory, freedom and destiny, and faith and divinity.

Painting Borges: Art Interpreting Literature is organized by the University at Buffalo Samuel P. Capen Chair and UB Galleries, Buffalo, New York and curated by Jorge J. E. Gracia.
