Francis Almendárez’ exhibition, rhythm and (p)leisure, is part of his ongoing investigation into the fruit and labor of working-class people, specifically of Central American and Caribbean diasporas. Almendárez’ work attempts to confront and unpack the legacy and histories of exploitation, precarity, unemployment, homelessness, dislocation, and debt specific to these diasporas. Drawing on his unique personal history as the descendant of intergenerational migrant agricultural workers, Almendárez inverts and reclaims established dialogues and negative depictions of these communities. The work brings both physical labor and cultural production into the foreground, blurring the line between work and play/leisure.
