In Shift Work, Laura-Gray Street explores the often overlooked role of women and femininity in the historical struggle for dignity in work. She treats poetics as as much a form of labor as textiles. The threads connect to create a collection that is at once personal and historical, abstract and grounded, in the factory, in the home, and as bloody as needlework can be.
