With contributions from UH students as well as members of the Houston public at large, the exhibition makes visible various kinds of labor, from the work of artists whose paintings, sculptures, performances, and installations are being reproduced, to that of the workshop attendees who painstakingly study the originals in order to capture their spirit, to the work of all who experience or witness violence and attempt to keep it in the realm of the visible."
