Delimitation /dəˌliməˈtāSH(ə)n/ (n) the marking or describing of the limits of something. Often the term is used as boundary delimitation, as in the drawing of boundaries, particularly of boundaries that determine electoral precincts, states, counties or other municipalities.

The work in this exhibition is steeped in ideas of identity and signifiers that question place and how one exists in that place; it is through the boundaries of language that one can simultaneously belong or not. Robinson is deeply connected to the complex history of what it is to be Mexican-American (and one without language). These edges challenge and reinforce Robinson’s sense of identity and are directly reflective of how generations of her family internalized what it means to be American.

The exhibit will be on display until June 2.
