THIS IS NOT IN SPANISH (2011)
1 ft x 14 ft
Neon

This is not in Spanish looks at the ways in which the Chinese population in Mexico navigates the daily marginalization they encounter there.  The neon translates as “this is not in Spanish,” making reference to both the famous Rene
Magritte painting “Ceci n'est pas une pipe" (This is not a pipe) as well as signs posted in the windows of Chinese establishments in Mexico.
