Work Work brings together artists who generate part of their income from their involvement in art education. Full-time, fractional, freelance, fixed term; what does it mean to fluctuate between doing work and making it in the orbit of the art school?
In her essay Work Ethic, Helen Molesworth argues that ‘one unifying principle of the extraordinarily heterogeneous field of post World War ll avant-garde art was a concern with artistic labor’. She goes on to explicate this theory by describing the conditions out of which this concern with labour grew and the ways in which artists reacted to the rapidly shifting post industrial world, by characterising themselves as workers.
In 2017, as Brexit looms and academia braces itself, as those in art education debate the professionalisation of their curricula, as the art market becomes increasingly rarified, how should artists see themselves?
Work Work is curated by Jo Addison, Adam Gillam, and Mark Harris.

Summertime mixed with kind of blue, well at least that was how it emerged. Mixed up but sounding right. Cannot make my mind up with the way words slide around.
Sometimes moods do get mixed up. Mixed up and sliding around, not really a way of capturing a moment. Summer blue was a moment though, a moment slipping away like an uncompleted thought. Summers pass and are coloured by passing. They imprint, leave a trace like a kind of blue is a trace. I never heard of summer blue, but it rolled and was there. It names something, a coming together, well something like this. The show would congregate around colour, painterly touch, soft sensuous appearance, aesthetic warmth but also something beneath all of that running contrary. So mixed up without direct translation, something outside naming. That’s all. A subtraction and misrecognition. Text by: Jonathan Miles
