[exhibit] In the Fields of the North / En los campos del norte // San Jose

Opening October 26, 2017 at History Park’s Arbuckle Gallery, In the Fields of the North / En los campos del norte shines a spotlight on migrant farm workers.

This exhibit features work from photojournalist David Bacon, who’s powerful photographs are displayed alongside moving oral narratives from migrant farm workers.

The exhibit, fully translated into both English and Spanish, gives viewers a reality check on the food they eat and the lives of the people who harvest it.

Traveling with migrant workers as the fruit and harvest season moves from the Mexican border to Washington state, In the Fields of the North / En los campos del norte sheds light on some basic questions:

  • How much do we know about the lives of the people who feed us?
  • Where do they live?
  • How does it feel to do some of the hardest repetitive labor imaginable?
  • And, what answers do farm workers themselves have to end their poverty and endless migration?

Arbuckle Gallery at the Pacific Hotel at History Park from October 26, 2017 to June 3, 2018; open Tuesday – Sunday, 11:00a – 4:30p.
