Adrian Aguilera

A native of Monterrey, México (b. 1981), Adrian Aguilera currently lives and works in Austin, Texas. Working with a variety of mediums that include sculpture, text-based work, mixed and multi-media, video, and installations, Aguilera researches the intrinsic essence that resides in objects. With an interest in scientific observation, cultural history, and social issues, the artist’s work addresses our relationship with the physical and cultural spaces in which we (co)exist. He holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts (2004) from Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León, México. He has exhibited both nationally and internationally at The Contemporary Austin, Artepace San Antonio, The Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa, Oklahoma; Fusebox Festival, Blanton Museum of Art, and George Washington Carver Museum in Austin; as well as the Instituto Cultural de México in Paris, France. Aguilera is also an active member of the Austin-based contemporary arts collaborative platform Black Mountain Project.
