12th October – 4th November 2017
Opening Thursday 12th October 6-9pm
Sharing an interest in labour and the ethics of work within contemporary society, the artists in this exhibition approach the subject from a diversity of perspectives. Mindfulness apps, baby induced exhaustion, prospecting for gold and peace lilies are co-opted to propose new, prompt conversations. Invariably, each artist questions the nature of work and asks, ‘who is working for whom, and on whose terms?’
This year, as part of Artweek Auckland, RM Gallery is participating in Electric Night on 12 October. Together with other galleries in the Karangahape Road and Arch Hill areas, we will be open from 6pm to 9pm. This event coincides with the opening of Hardly Working.
