About This Event

Kevin Melanson wants this body of work, specifically these embroideries to give viewers a look into the lives of practicing artists, who often receive payments for their work sporadically and have to maintain their day jobs to be able to afford to make art. Through embroidery, Melanson is exploring the relationship between the labour that goes into textile-based practices and the monetary worth that is associated with them. The making of art often becomes secondary to administrative work, because art is sometimes impossible to make without the monetary resources that the administrative work allows.
