Extraction: LaborFest Art Show

Viewing dates: July 1 through July 12
Viewing time: 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM on weekdays and 12:00 Noon to 4:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday

LaborFest participates in the 100th year commemoration of the Ludlow mining strike in Colorado, better known as the Ludlow Massacre. This strike in the Southern Colorado coal fields lasted from September 1913 to April 1914 and represents one of the bloodiest strikes in U.S. history. To help commemorate this important moment in labor history, LaborFest and ILWU Local 34 host an exhibition of art works on the broader theme of Extraction.

Humanity's relentless extraction of the earth’s resources for the purpose of creating fuel, without environmental stewardship, is a strong focus in this show. Likewise, the human body viewed as the site for extraction, whether in terms of energy, strength, endurance, or will, receives similar focus. Works countering the destructive mandate of the extractive processes transforming the world with visions of a just relationship between human consumption and human and earth integrity are also present. Artists include Philippe Barnoud, Sherri Cavan, Mike Conner, Peter Hudson, Justseeds Artists’ Collective and Josh MacPhee. Exhibition curated by David Duckworth.
