In the fourth exhibition of the series, three collaborative projects The Work Office (TWO), Publicworks Office (PwO) and Works Progress Collective (WPC) present workworkwork, which examines various approaches to the idea of work and how it is defined and viewed. Creating sites of work in the gallery, workworkwork will investigate work as physical labor, work as symbolic labor, and work as work. The Work Office (TWO) will hire artists for a week and compensate them with Depression-era wages. Publicworks Office will publish a volume of analytical/speculative case studies and create an installation of symbolic objects “re-collected” from local communities of material and symbolic exchange. Work Progress Collective will conduct surveys and focus groups, creating generative inflows to the workworkwork process as well as a broader project archive.
