CW: This episode we joke around about suicide. If you’re not in the mood for it, feel free to skip (it’s mostly a filler episode anyway, since we caught up to the manga, we’ll get back to the main plot next week).
Descend into the deep scorpionic undertide, with your pals (seriously, we’re pals) at Art & Labor! This week Lucia, Sarah and OK crawl around on the seabed floor like the bottom feeders they are, fulfilling their ecological niche of Vessel Updates™, I Told You Sos™ (Delta Varient), and Pollyanna Scolding™. Think of us right now as those black tar turds you got when you did the Master Cleanse. Let us bloodlet some of those humours for you, this week on Art and Labor!
*Join us on twitch for a special 100th episode/fuck the election stream on Tuesday! Don’t go through the horrors alone!!* We discuss the Contrapoints voting video, catch up on a recent art worker round table, and have a light debate on the Baltimore Museum of Art deacquisition controversy. There’s a very funny idea to make everyone with a BFA participate in their public museum’s acquisition process.

Go to the 3rd Anti-Columbus Day Tour: https://www.facebook.com/events/235077237185003/ We build on our “Artwashing and Soho” episode using our direct experiences and observations of gentrification in our neighborhoods. We do a “Goofus and Gallant” for anti-gentrication art. Shoutout to the locals, but also these thoughts can be applied all over the place. It’s a layered topic, but I think we illustrate our points well even though I have a bad cold.
