La Frontera Me Cru

Am I Your Type
Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art, UNLV, curated by D.K. Sole & Chloe Bernardo
The title translates to “the border crossed me” and is from a song by Los Tigres del Norte lamenting about the Mexico - US border and it's construction. The border bisects land and is manmade. It is a division of property and eliminates accessibility between lands that were once traversed without barrier. The text is also pixelated and distorted. It requires an insightful look to decipher. An insightful look is also required when investigating the problems of the border.
