OE Ten Year Reflection: Latham Zearfoss

The 8th reflection in our series comes to us in the form of a playlist made by Open Engagment Assistant Director Latham Zearfoss.

The mix is a soundtrack for the frustrated fantasies of arts administrators. These songs are femme-centric meditations on money, revenge and living a life of purpose.

These are songs are our anthems as we head into Open Engagement 2018 this weekend. They ring true with the reminder that All Labor is Emotional Labor.

Latham Zearfoss works in Chicago, where they produce time-based images, objects and experiences about selfhood and otherness. Outside of the studio, they contribute to collective motions toward joy and reflection through social projects such as a queer dance party (Chances Dances), a critical space for white allyship (Make Yourself Useful), and an itinerant conference on socially-engaged art (Open Engagement). lathamzearfoss.org
