NURTUREart: Take the Day Off / Gallery closed on Friday, January 24, 2014
The curatorial concept of One Trace After invited the artists in the exhibition to change their works over time. Take the Day Off / Part 1 responded to the building's past as a garment factory by presenting photographed seasonal textiles—and their aspirational names—that had been discarded by the company Clinique. Part 2 appropriated the name of one of the company's beauty products, Take the Day Off, to draft it into a declaration that asked the staff of the Non-Profit art organization to take a paid day off and by doing so to not only participate in the making of the work but also to reflect on the working conditions within the art sector.
