> DESCRIPTION

Making art is expensive, but it can be cheaper than therapy. In Artist: Unemployed conceptual artist Shawnee Barton uses humor, humility, and her art practice to cope with being unemployed during the worst economic downturn our country has seen in sixty years.

In this installation at LivingRoom Gallery, the artist uses a variety of media to address subjects related to her inability to get a job including daytime television, arts policy, and her ongoing existential crisis.

Artist: Unemployed was reviewed in Newcity and Chicago Art Review by Steve Ruiz and on Chicago Art Map by Candice Weber!
