About this Item
- Laborlore: Expressive Culture, Work Culture and the Art of Representation
- This panel considers the artistic representations of work in a range of cultural and social contexts (Mexico, Texas, Nevada, San Francisco) and in a variety of media (graphic arts, video and material culture). The panel focuses on issues of self-representation, the aesthetics of portraying work culture for both inside and outside audiences and the ways in which members of working communities adapt old and emerging media technologies to document and present their creative expressions to a rapidly changing audience.
