Means of Production utilizes industrial debris and materials (cardboard, spray paint, MDF/plywood, etc.) to recreate elements from the contemporary domestic landscape that drive commercial production. Snead seeks to reconnect with various elements of handmade craftsmanship that have largely been lost in this environment while commenting on society's affinity for objects, spending, and employment.
Snead has exhibited with the Jack Tilton Gallery and Deitch Projects in New York, and recently at institutions such as the New Orleans Contemporary Art Center and the Ogden Museum. Snead was involved in the development of artist-run organizations such as Redux Contemporary Art Center, Charleston, SC; Press Street/Antenna Gallery, New Orleans; and the traveling artist collective Transit Antenna.
In 2013, Snead was the director of the Hand in Glove Conference for Artist Run Organizations, and he sits on the national board for The Field of Artist Projects & Spaces.
