Guest artist Evelyn Serrano was invited to collaborate on this iteration of Economy of Gesture by Felipe Zuñiga.

Location:

200 North Spring Street (City Hall)

Sign:

Side one: We must profile your children’s illegal spirit

Side one: We must profile your illegal womb

Statement:

My project for Economy of Gesture was designed in response to the discourse and controversy around Arizona’s SB1070, one of the strictest U.S. anti-immigration measures in decades. Part protest signs, part poetic choreography, the project uses the traditionally corporate platform of sign spinning to interject in the dynamics of our buzzing metropolis.”
