Care Work

Solo Exhibition by Camela Guevara at Redux Contemporary Art Center in 2019. 

Carework is a continuation of Camela Guevara'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 caregiver contrasted mass produced quotidian objects. She envisions a future where all labor is honored and people are compensated fairly for their work.
