Más Caras is a multimedia visual art installation created by Evelyn Quijas Godínez for the 2019 Level Ground Residency Program + Festival.
Más Caras – meaning more faces in Spanish, and as one word masks – consists of paintings, collages, masks, sculptures, and assemblages. These works combine colorful Mexican folk-art aesthetics with elements and imagery of Toltec, Aztec, Maya, and Olmec artifacts and juxtaposes them against a contemporary Los Angeles landscape. By creating multiple vignettes which often coexist within a single work, the artist emphasizes an ever-present connectedness that transcends time and space.
The show will feature a live music performance by special guest Luis Perez and include a bar, panel discussion, and interactive elements curated by the artist.
