Yaritza Flores Bustos is an interdisciplinary artist born in Michoacán, México. She was raised in Maryvale, Phoenix, Arizona, something she states with pride. Flores Bustos holds a fidelity to truth and her community. She digs up, traces, and deconstructs migration through labor, history, policy, and personal and communal anecdote. She addresses how, why, and what people come to be criminalized and the ways they choose to proclaim space, within the confines of the death, that is the United States. A way to develop a new archive in which the multiple languages her community utilizes within survival are venerated.
