Carole Frances Lung: Hired Out
June 12 – October 18, 2009
Carole Frances Lung is a sculptor, performance artist and activist whose work investigates social issues related to the production of clothing. As part of the Michener's Outdoor Sculpture Program, Lung constructed an outdoor "loom" which mimicked the shape of a prison cell once used to hold inmates here when the Museum was a prison. Over the course of three weeks, Lung wove the walls and roof for the structure using articles of donated clothing along with inmates' uniforms. The artist hopes "This performance/sculpture will draw attention to the complexities, dynamics and abuses of prison labor." She holds an MFA in Fiber and Material Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
