Care Work

Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston presents Care Work, an exhibition by Camela Guevara November 30 – January 11.¬†Care Work is a continuation of the artist’s exploration of objects in the home. Pool noodles, shaker lids, and sponges are activated with fiber art in Guevara’s signature bright colors and embroidered and painted surfaces. She explores our connection to sewing as unpaid labor in the home, in the form of mending or sewing by a care giver contrasted with mass-produced quotidian objects. She envisions a future where all labor is honored and people are compensated fairly for their work. Free.
