Catch artist Rodrigo Valenzuela's show 'Prole' at CUAC up until this Saturday Sept 12. I'll be playing next Friday, Sept 19th for a special gallery stroll event with Make It Fit. #OffWorldSLC

CUAC – Raised in a working-class family and having entered the United States as a laborer himself, Valenzuela explores socio-cultural tensions with regards to class, race, and labor. In Prole, the iconography of historical labor unions becomes the departure point for a new body of work that comments on the dying spirit of the union force in today’s society.
