Walking through artist-activist Fred Lonidier’s "N.A.F.T.A. (Not a Fair Trade for All)" at Michael Benevento is like exploring a well-illustrated, 3-D manifestation of a research paper years in the writing. It’s wordy and dry, but it’s also compelling in the way a crash course on something you’re desperate to understand can be. The subject here: labor violations and trade law. In the late 1980s Lonidier created Labor Link TV, a public-access show about union activities, and footage from the show plays in the gallery. Footage from 1997 shows a protest outside a Hyundai plant in San Diego and features an interview with a verbose, eager organizer, who keeps referring to the sixth floor of the corporate building, wanting the big shots up there to know he’s not going away.
