The Project: MASA Cosmic Couture Portrait Collection

Centro Cultural Aztlan is pleased to present The Project: MASA Cosmic Couture Portrait Collection in our new space!

Join Centro Cultural Aztlan for the first ever dual exhibition featuring Midsummer Solstice: A Celebration of Life, Balance and Renewal in Galería Expresión I and The Project: MASA Cosmic Couture Portrait Collection, the first exhibit to open in our new gallery space, Galería Expresión II. These two exhibits come together for a stellar experience commemorating cosmic events and exploring our collective cosmology.
Centro Cultural Aztlan is a galactic outpost of Project:MASA (MeChicano Alliance of Space Artists), an ongoing exhibition featuring Chicanx and Latinx artists from San Antonio and South Texas. Project:MASA’s mission is to establish an awareness of outer space as an integral part of the Chicana/o modern mythos, reality and iconography. Rasquachismo and Latinxfuturism energize this exhibition, inviting us to collectively imagine and enact alternative horizons of possibility in which we all thrive juntos. Attendees of prior iterations of this ongoing exhibit were invited to participate in “MASAporte Naturalization Stations” wearing an original cosmic outfit or space suit. The Cosmic Couture Portrait Collection features a series of portraits, or “MASAporte” photos, of attendees wearing their cosmic outfits from the exhibit’s duration.
Lead Artist: Luis Valderas
