March 15, 2013, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Once the heroic image of class-consciousness and national character in the first half of the twentieth century, the worker has mainly disappeared from our contemporary visual landscape. This fast-paced program is designed to make visible the practice and process of a variety of South Florida workers, including Eleanor Hoh (wok star), Lara Stein Pardo (artist/anthropologist/Mapping Arts Project), Ruth Reitan (professor/independent filmmaker), Gabriele Marewski (farmer/Paradise Farms), Chana Sheldon (executive director/Locust Projects), Andrew Kaufman (photographer), Andrei Nana (ultramarathoner), and Mylinh Nguyen (art director/The Wolfsonian).
Their presentations will reveal how the creative process and laboring journey is as important, if not more, than the final product destination. Co-presented with AIGA Miami (American Institute of Graphic Arts).
