A New Job to Unwork At
Artspace is a non-profit art gallery providing exhibitions and programs that encourage experimentation and civic discourse in New Haven, CT. I colllaborated with their curators to design the identity and gallery wall graphics for their exhibition A New Job to Unwork At.
From the curator:
“A new job to unwork at investigates work as a social, material, and economic process, as well as a legitimating discourse that privileges certain activities and life choices. The exhibition is the result of an ongoing research that examines work’s crucial role in shaping our identities and our experiences of the world we live in.” “The title A new job to unwork at is borrowed from Valerie Solanas’s cult feminist text SCUM Manifesto (1967), which calls for women’s active and systematic dismantling of the patriarchal labor force by disobeying its laws and destroying its infrastructures.”
The graphics are simple: black and white text set in Operator, a typewriter-inspired font, subtly warped and distorted.
