Art & Labor chronicles the stories of social justice organizing within the arts. We hope to center the human cost of the “art world” and advocate for fair labor practices for artists, assistants, fabricators, docents, interns, registrars, janitors, writers, editors, curators, guards, performers, and anyone doing work for art & cultural institutions.

The state continues to pinkwash, reaching it’s deepest pits. We continue our thread of takes on the CIA rebrand, and push back against the stupidpol takes permeating the discourse.

Darcie, OK, and Sarah get in their feelings this week after some hurtful, toxic people decided to write articles that gave them agita and welled their sparkling Ghibli-wiggly eyes.

New President, same bullshit, but perhaps slightly more annoying given the faux progressive pandering. Not to mention the cultural pandering!
