Join DiverseWorks on Friday, March 8, at 8 pm for a live performance by sound and video artists led by Almendárez.

As part of the project Hello, My Name Is ____ , the parallels and contradictions between predominantly accepted notions of work vs. artistic labor will be further explored. Almendárez’s multi-channel video and sound installation draws upon survey questions related to employment and labor policies in the United States.

Almendárez’s work explores modes of storytelling that confront audiences with the nuanced, layered, and complex realities of how we construct identity. He often employs strategies that challenge the hierarchy between audio and visual stimuli, opening up new pathways to interpret and internalize our surroundings.
