Clearance

Chicago Art Department, April 2019

By researching different types of bureaucracies and infrastructures in traditional art exhibition spaces and immigration facilities, I utilize art handling materials and cues to mirror back modes of marginalization. The exhibition draws parallels between government and galleries by creating objects to form language that comments on unseen labor and concepts of discarding. I am interested in the similarities of construction and art handling occupations and how they surface issues of class and status. The work is informed through my perspective as an art handler, DACA recipient, and a person living in the United States.
