Join us for the opening reception of “The Labor We Wear” by Minnesota-based artist Rachel Breen. The event is part of the Mia’s Third Thursday. Come for the reception, and stay to hear local music and other events throughout the museum.

“The Labor We Wear” highlights the relationship among the garment industry, garment laborers, and fashion consumers. In utilizing used clothing to create her installations, Breen holds us, the consumers of fashion, complicit in the troublesome cycle of garment production and consumption—from dangerous factory conditions to problems caused by textile waste. Breen makes these relationships visible in order to find ways to break the toxic chain.
