11 May - 6 July
From school to adulthood, we spend a huge amount of our lives in the workplace. In it, life-long friendships and romances are formed; it provides the arena in which power games and gender politics are played out at a macro and micro level; it is the setting for innovation and life-changing research as well as mind-numbing repetition and boredom.
Through film works made by leading international artists, this exhibition explores the frustrations of life as an employee across the globe, revealing the often humorous strategies for survival and expressions of individualism that prevail.
Artists featured: Adel Abidin, Emily Jacir, João Onofre, Pilvi Takala, John Wood and Paul Harrison and a new commission by Superflex.

Once you've seen this exhibition, you won't look at your own office/workplace in quite the same way again!
Bring your workplace to ours!
Between 11 May and 6 July, escape your own workplace for a while and come in and make use of desks and meeting spaces in the exhibition gallery during gallery opening hours.
Whether you want somewhere to think creatively, catch up with emails, blog, read, or hold small, informal meetings, this is a unique chance to become part of the art ... and let it inspire your work! No need to book in advance, just come in.
There is free Wi-Fi in the gallery & if you're feeling peckish, our cafe sells refreshments and sandwiches.
The spaces will also be able to hire exclusively for breakfast/tea-time meetings. Please contact Hilary Machell, Business Development Manager on 01772 903619 or Gemma Rooke, Fundraising Assistant on 01772 906729 for more details.
