Through paintings, photographs, maps, blueprints and sculpture, Mexican artist Emilio Said interprets the modern-day metropolis in the exhibition, Unreal Cities: Informal Architecture Zone, on view in the main gallery of the University of Houston's Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture. "The city is the imaginary where our realities take place," says Said. The exhibition points to the centennial of the Mexican Revolution and the bicentennial of Mexico's independence.
An opening reception will kick off the exhibition at 6:30 p.m., Oct. 7. Said will attend this event and deliver a lecture from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. The College of Architecture is located at Entrance 16 off of Cullen Boulevard. The event is free and open to the public. Unreal Cities exhibition is on view until Nov. 20.
