"The Office: 11 Artists Explore Dynamics of Office Life and Culture"
2003-11-27 until 2004-01-18
Love it or loath it, the office remains at the centre of working life for most people, even more so in our current culture of long working hours. This exhibition brings together the work of 11 artists, alongside historical photographs, to explore the changing dynamics of office life and culture. Some of the works record the universal anonymity of the work environment, while others reveal moments of chaos and the disruption of the clinical corporate space.
Brought together for the first time in this exhibition the works reveal how the corporate environment continues to be a source of inspiration, not only for filmmakers, but also for contemporary artists. Photographers include Michael Schmidt, David Moore, Tim Davis, Lars Tunbjörk, Jacqueline Hassink, Julia Knop, Thomas Demand, Niall Blankley and Philip Kwame Apagya. John Pilson and Sophia Hultén are the two video artists in the show.
