La Revolucion was a site-specific installation on display in Chicago from May to September in 2015. It was described as a life sized comic-style exhibit created by positioning paintings on the walls of a gallery like panels in a comic book, inviting the audience member to read an original story by walking throughout the gallery.
A variety of paintings were presented in between various "pages," of the comic exhibition. These paintings included pieces that parodied advertisement.
