Danilo Correale: At Work’s End

Art in General presents At Work’s End, a newly commissioned exhibition by Danilo Correale grappling with our hopes and anxieties in an era of increased automation. If employment is seen as a source, rather than a solution, to a myriad of global problems today, Correale asks, is it time to imagine and embrace a very different society—a world without work?

The exhibition incorporates installation elements, audio, video animation, and paintings by Correale that consider what another model for a technologically and economically developed society could look like. The artist draws equally from the legacy of 1960s and 70s articulations of the refusal of work, as well as the self-help, motivational records and guided meditation techniques of the era.
