The artist Mikhail Karikis is curating a two-week long exhibition at the temporary exhibition space in Circus Street Market in collaboration with academic members of staff from the University of Brighton, new graduates and a group of colleagues based at the University of Sao Paulo.
Responding to the market’s history and local community, as well as to current concerns and research at the two universities, this exhibition explores the theme of vanishing forms of labour and the effects of the transition to immaterial production, while searching for emerging prospects. It will show new projects on notions of professional identity in the face of post-industrialisation, part-time, remote and virtual forms of labour, and will feature perspectives from the UK and Brazil with 2-D works, videos and performances.
Participants include: Matthew Noel Tod, Claudia Kappenberg, Amy Cunningham, Mikhail Karikis; new graduates from the University of Brighton Jodie Rowe and Poppy Tibbetts; and Brazilian colleagues: Hugo Fortes, Sissi Fonseca and Geraldo Souza Diaz.
