Opening alongside Open Studios, Factory Makers, curated by Kari Conte initiates a four-part exhibition over the next year that takes ISCP’s site of production – a historic printing factory – as the starting point to reflect on the changing nature and idea of work in society and how we define labor today. This exhibition presents seven artists who address the impact of the world’s rapidly changing economies on new social and cultural realities. Through various approaches, the included works consider the effect of globalization, new modes of ‘outsourced’ production and the blurring boundaries of material and immaterial labor.
ISCP curator-in-residence Svetlana Kuyumdzhieva will present different kinds of artistic engagements from the Bulgarian art community and will show works presented in her recent projects The Temptation of Chalga (2009, co-curated with Vessela Nozharova), AFTER EGO (2009) and The Bold and The Beautiful (2010). Two videos, one by Boriana Venzislavova and the other by Daniela Kostova, will be screened during the presentation.
