Join us at Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space for the opening of American Monarchy, a solo exhibition by Enrique Figueredo. The exhibition expresses Figueredo’s surreal fantasy of becoming the first American monarch. Highlighting politics, religion and popular culture, sex, citizenship, mysticism, and iconography, Figueredo paints and carves images that are both recognizable and falsified, compelling the viewer to believe in these dream-like stills as scenes from the past, present and future. In combining material observations with questions of capitalistic responsibility, Figueredo challenges the dissonance between power and authority and the intentions of those who represent a society for either the greater good or the good of the chosen few.
