Pyramids is a solo exhibition by Carmen Argote that includes a large scale new sculptural installation, drawings and video that engage questions surrounding distorted notions of luxury and value. Argote uses poor materials in this work, ripped cardboard, coffee grounds, pine needles, to reflect upon economic mobility, labor, and the potential of sculpture as a site of production.
“We deserve to participate in the creative economy.”
