Delimitations: Presented by The Mexican Culture Institute

  • Mexican Culture Institute 2829 16th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20009 United States

This fall and winter the Mexican Cultural Institute will host the exhibit DELIMITATIONS, which catalogs the work of artists Marcos Ramírez ERRE and David Taylor. The exhibit inauguration will take place Wednesday, September 28 at 6:45 pm and will include a presentation by and discussion with the artists.

DELIMITATIONS catalogs a 2400 mile long, site-specific installation that traces the border between Mexico and the United States as it existed in 1821. In marking the short-lived historic boundary with a series of monuments that mimic those installed along the contemporary border between Mexico and the United States, Ramírez and Taylor question the permanence of borders. Their work acknowledges the territory that Mexico lost and makes a claim for the present, not to contest the current boundary but to prompt a recognition that the United States and Mexico have a shared history and common interests.
