Borderline Projects is the brainchild of writer and researcher Salvador Olguin, and was born out of the need to bring separate artistic projects together under one single name. It takes advantage of a network of collaborators, fellow artists, and cultural institutions in order to promote its events and reach larger audiences.
The different projects and events that it promotes revolve around the notion of liminality, and are dedicated to explore interdisciplinary encounters and imaginative investigations, and it's interested in the limits of experience: the limits between art and science, imagination and technique, the intimate and the collective.
Salvador Olguin holds a MA in Humanities and Social Thought by New York
University. He has studied representations of Death extensively, and has
work with Mexican cultural artifacts from the late nineteen and
twentieth century. He was born in Monterrey, Mexico, and currently lives
in Brooklyn. Since 2011, Salvador Olguin has been a
member of Observatory, an art and events space in the Proteus Gowanus Art
Complex in New York City. Since then, Observatory has become a home for
Borderline Projects and a place where most of its events are hosted.
Observatory has been recognized as an up and coming venue in the New York City
art scene, and it has provided a valuable new network to promote Borderline
