The Context Library Series is pleased to present The Laboring Self, on display March 14- July 1, 2018 in the library gallery. The Laboring Self is an interactive installation that draws parallels between unregulated labor and its effect on workers’ bodies in both the Industrial Revolution and Mechanical Turk workers on Amazon.com’s online job platform. In this exhibit, xtine burrough and Sabrina Starnaman present three works within this larger series: Hired Hands, Weaving Texts: An Untitled Audio Tour, and Illuminated Voices. Each work is an artful invitation for visitors to participate in a conversation about labor and their bodies.
Exhibit Open House & Return to Sender Workshop
Please join us for a free Return to Sender Workshop hosted by burrough and Starnaman. During the workshop you'll learn about the present state of invisible crowd workers and contribute to an ongoing art project in dialog with Mechanical Turk workers. Refreshments will be provided.
