#Chicago “The Last Cruze,” a new body of work by LaToya Ruby Frazier at The Renaissance Society centers on the workers at the General Motors plant in Lordstown, Ohio. After more than fifty years of automobile production and a commitment to manufacture the Chevrolet Cruze until 2021, the facility was recently “unallocated” by GM. For many, this means uprooting or dividing their family, moving away from aging parents, or leaving behind their support networks and all they’ve ever known. Those who turn down a transfer are cut off from the company, losing their pensions and benefits. “The Last Cruze” features over sixty photographs and other elements, presented within an installation that visually echoes the assembly line in the GM Lordstown Complex (via @rensoc) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 LaToya Ruby Frazier, Mindy Miller standing with fellow Auto Warehouse Company ironworkers and the last Cruze in the GM Lordstown Plant Complex at 2300 Hallock-Young Road (11 years in at AWC), Lordstown OH, from “The Last Cruze,” 2019.
