Lotería: La Suerte Que Habla (Luck talks) is a game and exhibition inspired by the traditional Mexican game of La Loteria Mexicana. La Loteria is similar to bingo, but played with a deck of cards instead of numbers. Each card bears an image that evokes a popular Mexican event, artifact, individual, or other cultural symbol. Loteria: Luck Talks features entirely new images that represents Mexican artist Patricia Espinosa’s view of her native land. Her repertoire of images reflects her love for and belief in her native country, while denouncing contemporary issues related to the social and political conflicts facing modern Mexico. The cards are accompanied by coplas (riddles) written by Toronto-based Mexican-Canadian writer Martha Bátiz.
