The MAC is pleased to present A-Hole in One, an exhibition and interactive performance by El
Paso-based artist, Angel Cabrales.
A-Hole in One examines current political events and perceived societal norms through a
consumable and familiar format: golf.
In a time when executive decisions regarding the fate of global politics appear to be determined
on the golf course, Cabrales invites the viewer to hold this very power in their own hands. The
MAC's outdoor space will be staged as Cabrales' 'global' golfing green, complete with golf greens
and golf holes, where viewers can 'play a round' and inform the world of important decisions by
way of random tweets. Golf equipment is provided, but participants are encouraged to bring
their mobile phones and download the Twitter app.
Cabrales' work reflects the social and political concerns of the day. By manipulating commercial
and industrial design, and presenting these issues as an appealing 'product,' he hopes to heighten
awareness of the subject matter and begin conversation under the guise of entertainment.
Through his interactive approach, Cabrales makes the viewer a part of the work itself and prompts
reflection on the current state of affairs, as well as the artist's role in society.
Angel Cabrales received his BFA in sculpture from Arizona State University and his MFA in sculpture
from the University of North Texas. He has shown work consistently for over ten years including shows
in major cities such as Dallas, Fort Worth, El Paso, and Phoenix and internationally in Juarez,
Mexico, and the Bibliothèque Centre Pompidou in Paris, France. He also attended the Rogers Lake
residency in Flagstaff, AZ, and participated in the Photo Book, "La Frontera" by German
photographer Stefan Falk, which was exhibited in Berlin, Germany. Angel has taught at several
universities throughout Texas, including the University of North Texas and the University of Texas at
Brownsville. Currently, he is the Visiting Assistant Professor in Sculpture at the University of Texas at El
Paso, a board member of the Museum and Cultural Affairs Department and Public Art Committee
for the City of El Paso, as well as an independent multi-media artist.
A-Hole in One will be on view Saturday, November 18 through Saturday, December 9, with an
interactive performance as part of the 15th annual Cedars Open Studios on Saturday, November
18, 10AM-6PM. The exhibition is open to the public daily Wednesday-Saturday 12PM-5PM. A
closing reception will be held on Saturday, December 9, 6PM-9PM.
