Victor Maldonado in "Mapping Hidden Systems"

Group Exhibition at Oregon State University

Victor Maldonado's work is included in the three-person exhibition "Mapping Hidden Systems" at Fairbanks Gallery, Oregon State University through May 23.

 

Using a sewing template for a lucha libre mask, Victor Maldonado presents three variations on the mask in surprising scales and materials. By disrupting the function and symbology of the mask, Maldonado redirects it toward a grappling with themes of identity, gender, social spaces, labor, and colonization, and blurs the distinction between map and template.

 

Artist talk and reception on Thursday, May 17, 4-8pm.
