This exhibition project explores the exigencies of societal change that synchronously valorize technology over labor. The artists explore the demands of labor placed on us, as the demands of civic and social alienation threaten to overwhelm us. The project speaks about the building of borders—material and symbolic—giving rise to social exclusion and limiting the expression of local cultures. Jose Ferreira and Asma Kazmi both utilize different disciplines, processes, materials, ways of knowing, and experiencing, to make their work.
