Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space is thrilled to present Labor Days a solo exhibition of mixed media works by Michael Pribich that reference Cocineros  (food workers) and laborers of all kinds.  The show examines the triumphs of immigrant working class labor, showing them in a position of strength instead of deficiency.  The industrial kitchen items utilized in Labor Days include stainless steel shelves, cutting boards, brooms and mops.  These are combined with diverse materials such as human hair, amulets, silver chain and medicine balls. These art works look at the workers’ motivating force and inspiration to continue working. They reveal a humanity that synthesizes and expands the definitions of economic, social and political systems.
