Corpus Christi, TX: K Space Contemporary is pleased to announce the opening of a new art exhibition, Enmascarados: Homage to the Social Phenomenon of Lucha Libre. Enmascarados (the masked ones) is an art exhibition that showcases top Chicano artists’ interpretations of Lucha Libre, Mexican freestyle wrestling. Displayed are photos, paintings, mixed media, video, and sculpture. The exhibition was curated by curator, artist, and musician Angel Quesada, and is currently traveling throughout the state of Texas.

Statement by Exhibition Organizer, Angel Quesada:

Since the spectacle of Lucha Libre (freestyle wrestling) began in Mexico, it has captivated audiences and created a phenomenon that has gained popularity all over the world. The fact that the wrestlers don a mask is very compelling and beckons us to assume a role in the ring. Whichever side you choose to play in the ring; the "rudo" (rude boy brawler, bad guy) or the "tecnico" (traditional technical wrestler, good guy), the mask acts as a portal allowing our imagination to embody the luchador (wrestler).

This exhibit sits us, the audience, on the edge of the dark and controversial, the childish and even spiritual… rendering for us a colorful allegory of good versus evil. Although the mask's use in the sport hides the luchador's face, what emerges as a result of this masquerade is the paragon of a Mexican visual past and a newfound adoration and creation of a new iconic face of Mexico.

"Enmascarados: Homage to the Social Phenomenon of Lucha Libre", is not simply an exhibit but a collection of Chicano artists participating in a happening. It is a tour de force of artistic talent celebrating a slice of culture. The work included displays photos, paintings, mixed media, video, and sculpture which continue a dialogue of diversity and irreverent playfulness, nostalgia and exoticism.

Participating Artists:

Federico Archuleta (El Paso), Jesus Cimi, Fidencio Duran (Austin), Celeste De Luna (Brownsville), Faustinus Deraet (Mexico City), Xavier Garza (San Antonio), Beto Gonzalez (San Antonio/Los Angeles), Hector Hernandez (Laredo), Gerald Lopez (Corpus Christi), Enrique Martinez (El Paso/San Antonio), Marcela Moran (Laredo), Abel Ortiz-Acosta (Val Verde/Del Rio), Angel Quesada (Los Angeles/Boston), Bonifacio Rodriguez (Austin), Jose Rodriguez Venezuela/Leander), Ricardo Ruiz (Corpus Christi)

About the exhibition curator, Angel Quesada

Quesada, has worked as an artist, curator and preparator, and was production manager at Mexic-Arte Museum 2005-2009. Quesada has coordinated numerous exhibitions including, YLA 12: Embracing Chaos on behalf of Mexic-Arte Museum at the inauguration of The Mexican American Cultural Center Austin in 2007 and Del Otro Lado in Houston for the Art League of Houston in conjunction with Chase Bank in 2008.

Quesada, originally from Laredo and Eagle Pass, has lived in Boston, Los Angeles and Del Rio. He currently lives in Austin, Texas and is a Master Instructor at the Mexican American Cultural Center.
