UTEP Rubin Center’s 10th Anniversary kicks off with ‘Territory of the Imagination’

In 10 years, the Stanlee and Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts at The University of Texas at El Paso has brought thought-provoking international contemporary art to the El Paso border community and grown to be a nationally and internationally recognized center for contemporary art.

The community is invited to join the Rubin Center in celebrating its 10thanniversary with a weekend of exhibitions, performances and conversations that explore art and space at the border.

“Territory of the Imagination: At the Border of Art and Space” is a collaborative project of exhibitions, performances and conversations that will look at the work of artists with the collective interactions of space and space technology.

“The anniversary events feature an exciting roster of local and international artists, and there is something for everyone, from the free opening reception of our winter exhibitions, to an art-science conference on space travel and the peaceful use of space, to our performance-packed gala,” said Kerry Doyle, director of the Rubin Center. “Events like this invite students, faculty and community members to engage in playful and enriching ways with the world around us.”

Thursday, Nov. 5, 2015:

The opening reception for “Territory of the Imagination” will take place from 5 -7:30 p.m. at the Rubin Center. The event will kick off a weekend of exhibitions, workshops and public events in El Paso and Juárez, Mexico.

Friday, Nov. 6, 2015:

The “Becoming Aerosolar: Space without Rockets Conference” will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Rubin Center. Conference presenters will discuss alternatives in space exploration and art.

Following the conference is the Rubin Center 10th Anniversary Gala, from 7 p.m.-1 a.m. at the Epic Railyard Center, 2201 E. Mills Ave. Tickets are $50 per person and can be purchased here. The Rubin Center invites the public to take part in an evening of food, entertainment and art.

Sunday, Nov. 8, 2015:

“Becoming Aerosolar: 0-Emission Flight” is the unveiling of artist Tomás Saraceno’s lighter-than-air sculpture at White Sands Missile Range. The Argentine-born, Berlin-based artist is coming to the border to demonstrate through a floating sculpture in the dramatic landscape of the White Sands desert how we can float into space.

For more information and a full list of events, visit the Rubin Center’s website or contact Melissa Barba at mebarba@utep.edu or 915-747-7837.
