Five Minutes, Five Questions Artist Lina Puerta

Subscriber onlyThe 21c Museum Hotel in Bentonville has a new exhibition on display exploring the evolution of work and industry in the 21st century. "Labor&Materials" opened Jan. 25 and examines technological innovation through the varied mediums of artists contemplating commerce and consumption, access to goods and jobs, and information and infrastructure.
