Lucha Libre, translating to “Free Fight” or “Fight Freestyle,” is not merely a form of professional wrestling in Mexico; it is a cultural phenomenon deeply rooted in Mexican history and identity. Originating in the early 20th century, Lucha Libre embodies a unique blend of athleticism, theatricality and tradition. This exhibition not only captures the physicality and drama of Luchadores and Luchadoras but also explores the cultural significance of this art form
