Labor Migrant Gulf is a comprehensive art exhibit featuring nearly 100 artists, bringing awareness to the migrant working poor in the Persian/Arabian Gulf, the US –Mexican border and throughout the world. This exhibit, born in the United States, is inspired by laborers half way around the world, while keeping a clear eye on regional borders in the Western Hemisphere. A significant goal of Labor Migrant Gulf is to integrate new works and actions by artists in the towns and cities where it travels.

The exhibit’s center pieces are two boteh created by over 70 artists from San Diego, New York, Chicago, Minneapolis, Mexico City, Tijuana, Berlin, Milan, Beirut, Paris, Rome, Dubai, Toronto, Vancouver, Hawai’i and Los Angeles. Labor Migrant Gulf began as a contribution to Gulf Labor, based in New York to protest the building of cultural institutions such as the Guggenheim and Louvre in Abu Dhabi on the backs of migrant labor.
