[@ABRONS SERIES] Art Work: Whose Labor?
There is a longstanding disparity that pervades the art industry in terms of labor, wealth-distribution, and fair treatment. Recent efforts to organize labor at New York City arts institutions have highlighted the realities of these tensions. Whose labor is being used to generate the immense wealth circulating the art world? What does the future of labor looks like for cultural workers? In Art Work: Whose Labor we are seeking to explore who is still missing from this conversation, how we can better promote solidarity in the industry, and what has prevented the understanding of art-work as labor for so long.
