Carissa Rodriguez: The Maid

Carissa Rodriguez examines the material and social conditions in which art is produced and reveals how the canonical figure of the artist is reflected in—and reproduced by—the products of her labor. A newly commissioned video by Rodriguez engages the discourse of sculpture through the tools of cinema and follows the lives of 'related' artworks, recounting the conditional relationships between artist, artwork, and third-party agents (institution, caregiver, surrogate) in familial terms.
