Workers’ Studio
(Community Partnership Exhibition)

The Workers’ Studio is a series of collaborative art projects that use art as a tool for workers’ led-organizing. The Workers’ Studio is nomadic, and functions mostly in Day Laborers’ Worker Centers as a weekly encounter. Workers and artists use the studio to approach art projects that support their organizing and advocacy.

The projects in Workers’ Studio reflect the needs and urgency of the group, in this case, immigrant women in cooperatives. This exhibition features a series of collaborative designs, with concepts identified by immigrant workers, and supported by interactive designers, architects, and labor organizers. This show will reflect works produced in the last year of the Workers Studio’s engagement Apple Ecco Cleaning, Love and Learn Childcare Cooperative, Adhikaar, Lunicorns, Mirror Transled Beauty Cooperative, Brightly Port Richmond cleaning cooperative, and Mujeres en Movimiento.  

The Community Partnership Exhibition Program at the Queens Museum provides opportunities for cultural and other nonprofit organizational partners to develop and mount short-term exhibitions based on their programs and our collaborative projects.
