Menudo and Lucky Charms is an exhibition of videos and paintings that explores assimilation and identity within Mexican and American cultures. This body of work is rooted in my experiences growing up in a Mexican household within a predominantly white community. I have been assimilated to American culture, a fact that becomes clear when I am among people of Mexican heritage, my heritage. Menudo and Lucky Charms is an investigation and reclamation of self. Throughout the exhibition, I seek out moments of connection and contradiction between my family history and the evolution of my identity.
