Abstract/Description: This thesis examines the work of contemporary Mexican artist Carlos Amorales dealing with the theme of lucha libre, professional Mexican wrestling. It assess the critical literature on the subject and offers new avenues of interpretation. Specifically, I relate Amorales' lucha libre works to critical theories on the spectacle, performance art, wrestling, and the semantic framework E-Prime as a means of clarifying misinterpretations in the surrounding discourse on the artist. In this vein, I pay close attention to the sport of lucha libre itself as a historical and cultural entity in Mexico and propose a method for broadening the artist's interpretive audience.
