Maya Taqueria Bag is part of Shirt’s series of pearled garbage works, in which pieces of garbage selected and saved by the artist undergo a process of being “pearled,” meaning flat-sided cabochon pearls are glued to the object. The title here references a favorite Mexican restaurant of Shirt’s located in Brooklyn, NYC.
