Julio Cesar Morales
Contrabando

Contrabando is a work that references the larger sociological phenomenon in which immigrant economic strategies come to infiltrate urban landscapes. It is a study of the realities and consequences of exploited labor that simultaneously aims to record the living history of labor.

Born in Tijuana, Mexico, San Francisco-based Julio Cesar Morales explores issues of labor, memory, surveillance technologies, and identity strategies.
