Extract from Exhibition organisor:
From school to adulthood, we spend a huge amount of our lives in the workplace. In it, life-long friendships and romances are formed; it provides the arena in which power games and gender politics are played out at a macro and micro level; it is the setting for innovation and life-changing research as well as mind-numbing repetition and boredom.
Through film works made by leading international artists, this exhibition explores the frustrations of life as an employee across the globe, revealing the often humorous strategies for survival and expressions of individualism that prevail.
Artists featured: Adel Abidin, Emily Jacir, João Onofre, Pilvi Takala, John Wood and Paul Harrison and a new commission by SUPERFLEX.
Workplace is a Mead Gallery touring exhibition organised in association with the Harris Museum & Art Gallery
