"Labor, Visibility, Value: A Conversation with Arlene Dávila, Alicia Grullón and Shellyne Rodriguez"

New York University professor and director of the Latinx Project Arlene Dávila and New York-based artists Alicia Grullón and Shellyne Rodriguez will explore the theme of labor through a conversation about their cultural work. The speakers will examine intersecting themes of equity, race, class and creativity, considering the role of art in exploring visibility and value of work and workers. This conversation will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Arlene Dávila.

This program is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Terra Foundation for American Art and is aimed at providing frameworks for thinking about a forthcoming exhibition about labor at the Mead Art Museum.
