"Moctezuma's Revenge"
ASU Art Museum
Now through April 26

You already may have heard the buzz surrounding this show, and we're here to tell you it's warranted. "Moctezuma's Revenge," which opened in January, is the first comprehensive solo exhibition of works by contemporary Mexican-American artist Eduardo Sarabia. The show was curated by Julio Cesar Morales, who has been with the ASU Art Museum for about a year and a half now. During this short time, Morales already has managed to bring in really excellent work. Sarabia's mixed-media pieces are no exception. "Sarabia's exciting new body of work is in perfect dialogue with Arizona," Morales says, "in regard both to the content of the work and to its relationship to the current social climate we are experiencing, from connections to borders, the legalization and trafficking of drugs and identity issues." We love Sarabia's works on canvas, but the larger installation-based pieces in this exhibition are really not to be missed.
