Office Space cleverly subverts contemporary office culture as a means to explore labor practices in the 21st century post-industrial economy.

As offices become mobile, the nine-to-five becomes a nonstop 24-hour cycle, and the service and information economy predominates, this exhibition reflects on the rise of "immaterial labor" in developed countries. Through video, sculpture, painting, and installation, the artists in Office Space interrogate universally recognized aspects of office architecture, design, aesthetics, and protocols as a means to understand the shift toward immaterial labor practices.
