E. Turpin 2013 Stainlessness ,Convenience Gallery, Toronto, Canada 10 May - 7 Jul 2013 http://conveniencegallery.com/


To accompany the book Stainlessness, published this Spring by the Journal of Aesthetics and Protest Press (Leipzig and Los Angeles), Sound & Language Distribution is pleased to announce the release of a Limited Edition set of prints. The etched plates on view in the Convenience Gallery - and the set of prints they produced - tell the story of labor movements in North America and show how they have shaped the cities of Sudbury, Chicago, Pittsburgh, and Detroit. While processes of urbanization have all but erased these struggles from our cities and left only ambivalent monuments to mark the past, these prints assert the centrality of labor as a force capable of transforming the nature of cities, the culture of America, and the geologic deep-time marked by the Anthropocene.
