We Are Not Machines/No Somos Máquinas/我们不是机器: Voices of Northampton Restaurant Workers
Leslie Lynn Lucio, Adam Reid, Seth Gregory, Javiera Benavente
& Pioneer Valley Workers Center
6 x 6
July 10 - 16
We are Not Machines / No Somos Máquinas highlights the voices and faces of people affected by low-wage restaurant work. The show creates a connection between workers and the community they serve daily, and hopes to foster a collective dialogue about workplace conditions to create a more just and sustainable future for workers in Northampton and other cities. The exhibition features portraits by Leslie Lynn Lucio, interviews with service workers by Adam Reid, and typesetting by Seth Gregory. A series of events will accompany the exhibition, including a public launch, film forum, a worker panel, and worker-led musical groups.
Funding for this project was provided in part from The Art Angels through the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts and a grant from the Northampton Arts Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
