MASS MoCA's "The Workers" to feature Made in L.A.

We're thrilled to announce that Made in L.A. will be featured in MASS MoCA's upcoming exhibition "The Workers". The exhibition, which runs from May 29, 2011-April 14 2012, explores what work "is like today in a global economy marked by outsourcing, rapid migration, disruptive economies, and a state of labor that seems fractured, precarious, and almost invisible..." The exhibition includes video, sculpture, photography, and performance art and we're pleased to be in the company of fellow filmmakers Vicky Funari and Sergio de la Torre whose wonderful film Maquilapolis will also be screened.

Made in L.A. screened at MASS MoCA once before, as part of Working Films' "Content + Intent" Documentary Institute. We're thrilled to be back, and we agree with the curators that hosting this exhibit at MASS MoCA could not be more fitting: "Once the site of a bustling factory itself -- whose closure in the face of intense international competition left nearly a third of its community out of work -- MASS MoCA is perhaps uniquely positioned to present this timely show. The history of North Adams' workers mirrors that of many in the United States and abroad today who have lost a way of life to the perennial hunt for cheaper labor, even while the low-wage workers who replaced them have just begun to organize for more rights and better working conditions..."

Visit MASS MoCA's website for all the details. Special thanks to the co-curators of the exhibition, artist Carla Herrera-Prats and MASS MoCA curator Susan Cross!
