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!

If accepted, works will be on display during our 10th Annual Dia de los Muertos Festival.
