Organized in collaboration with Dr. Matthew Basso, Assistant Professor of History and Gender Studies and Director of the American West Center at the University of Utah, this exhibition features Depression-era prints focusing on men and women and work.
During the years of the government-sponsored Federal Art Project, American printmaking techniques were expanded, and themes of labor were integral to the new print vocabulary. Printmakers, along with other artists, were given an unprecedented sense of purpose when the U.S. government included them in the vast numbers of unemployed workers who could apply for work relief from the Works Progress Administration (WPA).
At Work speaks powerfully to contemporary questions—underscored by anxieties surrounding the great recession—about the place of labor in our lives.
