+ ARLEENE CORREA VALENCIA
SOMOS VISIBLES / WE ARE NOT INVISIBLE, by Arleene Correa Valencia + Ana Teresa Fernández, takes a political stance on visibility through the use of high visibility ready-to-wear safety gear present throughout many labor industries, and as it relates to the invisibility of the undocumented in the U.S.—and within COME TO YOUR CENSUS campaign, as it relates to being seen and counted in the 2020 Census. Read more about SOMOS VISIBLES—made possible through the generous support of Levi's—and the artists' work here.
