Pictures at an Exhibition presents images of one notable show every weekday.

Today’s show: “Carissa Rodriguez: The Maid” is on view at MIT List Visual Arts Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, through Sunday, July 29. The solo exhibition presents two video works and a series of photo-based works by the New York–based artist that all look to examine “the material and social conditions in which art is produced and reveals how the canonical figure of the artist is reflected in—and reproduced by—the products of her labor,” according to a press release. The titular work tracks a sculpture by Sherrie Levine as it moves from various locations in New York and Los Angeles.
