Title Call for Entries: Lucha Libre
Organization K Space Contemporary
Closing Date Friday, September 29, 2017
Location Corpus Christi, TX

Ladies and Gentlemen,
K Space Contemporary proudly presents “!Viva La Lucha!”, an art exhibition of epic proportions that focuses on the rich tradition of Mexican freestyle wrestling known as “Lucha Libre”. Lucha Libre and “Los Luchadores” (the energetic, high-flying, men and women wrestlers who practice this daring art form) have been popular in Mexico since the early 20th century and many “enmascarados” (masked wrestlers) have achieved iconic status as superheroes of the ring and of the movie screen.
Colorful, passionate, skillful and as dramatic as any Mexican daytime novella, Lucha Libre is not only wrestling and entertainment, but a cultural phenomenon that is sweeping the USA and much of the world today. This fantastic art exhibition showcasing artists from all across South Texas, will capture the brilliant spirit of Lucha Libre, honor Los Luchadores who practice it and thank the people who keep its cultural traditions alive. !Viva La Lucha!

Open to all. Works of art are due September 29th. Must be, or become a member of KSpace Contemporary to submit work.

Exhibition opens October 6 with ArtWalk, and runs through November 17, 2017. For details and how to participate visit: http://diadelosmuertoscc.com/call-for-artists/
