“How I manipulate materials is as important to me as what is being represented. In this sense the notion of labor does not only exist in a social and historical context, it is present in the fabrication of each artwork.” – Johanna Unzueta
Join Dr Danielle Child for an online talk exploring Johanna Unzueta’s varied practice in relation to themes of labour and capital in the 21st century.
With Modern Art Oxford’s temporary closure due to the ongoing impact of the coronavirus, this event has changed since it was first advertised. It will now take place online on Thursday 9 July at 6.30pm with free booking.
Information about joining the online event will be emailed to attendees in the coming weeks.
Dr Danielle Child is a Senior Lecturer of Art Theory and Practice at Manchester School of Art. Her interests lie in the post-war and contemporary periods and in the relationships between artistic practice and labour. Within this area, she is interested in making visible the work and the workers who are often hidden.
Her recent book Working Aesthetics: Labour, Art and Capitalism (Bloomsbury Academic, 2019) examines the moments where art and labour intersect under capitalism, with an emphasis on the neoliberal period.
