Human Resources takes into account elements of human exchange, which many Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) resident artists have explored while working downtown. Works by former LMCC resident artists – Manuel Acevedo, Jane Benson, Michael Cataldi, Lishan Chang, Carola Dertnig, Nicolás Dumit Estévez, Terence Gower, Yoko Inoue, Hoon Kim, Catarina Leitão, Diane Meyer, Shelly Silver, and Shinique Smith – recall David Rockefeller's founding of Lower Manhattan Cultural Council shortly after the Twin Towers were built. The Council's original purpose was to humanize the architecture of the World Trade Center Plaza, which many area workers found intimidating. Each artist in the exhibition provides a service to the downtown community in their own way through the examination of human interaction, material waste and the environment, hierarchies of power, social exchange, internal emotional experiences of being there, scale of architecture, and the commodification of labor. The exhibition includes sculpture, video, performance and installation art.
