Happy Workers (USA)


Workplaces: Pasts & Presents is pleased to launch this exhibit -- the first in a series that will appear over the next few months featuring visual artists and visual researchers whose creative output centres around themes of labour and the workplace.

In Happy Workers the artist Enid Crow investigates the contemporary American worker by dressing up as characters in discarded work uniforms and posing in front of their workplaces. The photographic project uses humor and parody to respond to injustices such as low wages, deceptive employment contracts, and hostility at work.
