Work: Photographs by Bill SewellFriday, April 12, 2013, 6:00pm
Exhibition Opening Reception
This exhibition was composed as a meditation on aspects of the life of labor and draws from a series of photographs shot in Chicago’s Loop (1999-2000) and in the Marais district of Paris (2011-2012). Reflecting upon a number of work experiences, objects, and sites, this collection of photographs explores a range of existential and emotional qualities entailed in the quotidian experience of work.
Work was mounted in anticipation of 3CT’s upcoming conference “Global Capitalism and the Crisis of Work,” which will examine the structural transformations of capitalism and of the world of work in recent decades.
