tonico lemos auad in group exhibition at santa barbara museum of art, california

2 July 2013
Gallery artist Tonico Lemos Auad will feature in a group exhibition 'Labour and Wait' at Santa Barbara Museum of Art, California.

The exhibition will examine contemporary culture's obsession with authenticity, the hand-crafted, and the politics of manufacturing and labor. Works in the exhibition date from the late 1980s to the present, a period in which artists turned from industrial fabrication and a seamless aesthetic to hand-made or "do-it-yourself" sensibilities.

'Labour and Wait' is organised by Julie Joyce, Curator of Contemporary Art, and features artists/artist collaboratives from Europe, South America, and the United States, many which are under-represented in museums on the West Coast.

The exhibition runs from 2 July to 22 September 2013.
