Stewart Martin: 5 weeks, 25 days, 175 hours

Chisenhale Gallery, Saturday 23 April 2016, 11am–6pm (registration at 10:45)

Chisenhale Gallery presents 5 weeks, 25 days, 175 hours, the first solo exhibition in the UK and a new commission by Berlin-based artist, Maria Eichhorn.

5 weeks, 25 days, 175 hours is a two-part work examining contemporary labour conditions. The exhibition opens with a one-day symposium exploring ideas raised by the project. At Eichhorn’s request, the gallery’s staff will then withdraw their labour for the remaining five weeks of the exhibition. None of Chisenhale’s employees will work during this period and the gallery and office will be closed, implementing leisure and free time in the place of work.   

The symposium features lectures by Isabell Lorey and Stewart Martin and will be chaired by Andrea Phillips. The afternoon will be devoted to a discussion with the audience, in which Maria Eichhorn will also participate.

Tickets: £10 / £7 concessions including lunch and refreshments. Tickets must be booked in advance.
