Participation in Hidden Assembly in Portland, Oregon


Hidden Assembly is a group exhibition that will foreground work and workers in an era of hidden labor, curated by Yaelle Amir. The starting point of the exhibition is the recognition that under capitalism most production is rendered invisible. The labor that people perform is obscured or eliminated–an effect heightened by the expanded tech field, global outsourcing, and the rise of precarious work. Hidden Assembly addresses our reconfigured labor market by featuring projects that examine what it means to work in current times, and creative campaigns geared towards exposing exploitative conditions that precarious laborers face today from cultural workers to caretakers to independent contractors.
