Ramiro Gomez is a young artist who portrays Latino domestic workers employed in affluent Los Angeles neighborhoods. The Ramiro Gomez Collection of Visual Works at the CSRC Library includes selections from Gomez’s Happy Hills series of mixed-media works, as well as documentary photographs of his installations. Luxury, Interrupted features new pieces, made specifically for this show, that highlight the hard work and dedication of those who come to work at UCLA and in the surrounding neighborhoods—a workforce that is often overlooked.
