After presentations at the Berkeley Museum of Art, LAXART, and the Whitney Biennial, Zarouhie Abdalian returns to her hometown with a solo exhibition.
Through sound, sculpture, and site-specific installation, Abdalian presents a body of work that deals with the historical and subjective condition of human labor. Mounting a critical response to the art historical development of the readymade, Abdalian foregrounds in found objects the traces of their production, use, and circulation within society. The exhibition will include existing works as well as newly commissioned pieces and a film program curated by Abdalian.
Living and working in the Ninth Ward of New Orleans, Calhoun and McCormick have documented the city and its people for forty years.
This presentation will exhibit their photographs of laboring communities including the last sugar cane and sweet potato harvesters, unionized dockworkers, musician day laborers, hospitality and restaurant workers, domestic caretakers and one of the largest workforces in the state of Louisiana, the inmates of the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola. This will be the first exhibition to present this comprehensive study of the history and present of the city’s changing labor force..
