OPEN CALL: Lucha Libre Art Exhibition


Dallas artist and curator, Jose Vargas, is seeking art entries for the Lucha Libre art exhibition. The show will be presented at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center, a facility of the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture, from December 11, 2021, to January 21, 2022.

The central theme of the exhibition is Luchadores (Mexican Wrestlers). The term Lucha Libre translates to Free Fight, or Fight Freestyle. In Mexico, the term is used for professional wrestling. Most Luchadores/Luchadoras wear colorful masks. Typically, the wrestling match involves the técnicos (good guys) vs. the rudos (bad guys).

The artwork created for this exhibition must relate to Lucha Libre in one form or another. Artwork should depict wrestlers, Mexican wrestlers, Luchadores, or Luchadoras. Artists are encouraged to create unique works of art and ideas, innovative techniques, using great imagination and having fun while doing so.
