Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Re:Working Labor at SAIC’s Sullivan Galleries, Image Employment presents a selection of recent moving image works that investigate various modes of contemporary labor and production. Curated by Aily Nash and Andrew Norman Wilson, the program explores the growing confluence of human and machinic technologies, corporate lifestyle, globalized capitalism’s extraction and exploitation of workers and the environment, and the psychic effects of these forms of labor. Featuring Harun Farocki’s A NEW PRODUCT (2012), Stephanie Comilang’s COME TO ME PARADISE (2016), and Jenn Nkiru’s BLACK TO TECHNO (2019). Presented in partnership with SAIC’s Sullivan Galleries, as part of the exhibition Re:Working Labor, on view September 21-November 27, 2019. Multiple formats. (Aily Nash and Andrew Norman Wilson)
