Art Exhibition: Alebrijes by Gustavo Boada

June 9, 2023 @ 8:30 am - June 16, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

From June 9th to June 16th, 2023 

Monday through Friday | 9 am - 5 pm

CLUES Latino Art Gallery: 797 East 7th Street St. Paul, MN 55106

Gustavo Boada is presenting his alebrijes in a solo exhibition for two weeks. Celebrate the folk art of large colorful paper mache sculptures and the connection with our Latino heritage.

ARTISTIC STATEMENT

These Alebrijes are part of the great project to continue the tradition of large size paper-mâché figures;

  • Catrinas: They are skeletal characters that are presented during the Day of the Dead, and use humor to mock material wealth.
  • Alebrijes: These are fantastical creatures that speak of our mixed racial heritage as Latinos, as well as our creativity and bright colors.
  • Mojigangas: These are large-scale representations of important community leaders or popular icons, which educate the community about who they were, but also make them feel accessible and attractive (rather than overly important or relevant). Some traditions included brides and brooms.
