The Future of Work at Fort Point

{ Through Saturday, January 6th } Eight artists explore The Future of Work in a new show in Boston’s Gallery at Atlantic Wharf.

What is the future of work? Eight artists grapple with that question in The Future of Work, a new exhibition now on view at The Gallery at Atlantic Wharf in Boston, Massachusetts. Featuring work by Paul Belenky, Sammy Chong, Andrew Fish, Yetti Frenkel, Cody JustusHeather Kapplow, Michael MacMahon, and Warren Stred, and curated by Joshua Fischer, The Future of Work questions which work we value and provides viewers a chance to reflect as advancing technology and the freelance economy reconfigure our understanding of the working world’s shifting landscape.

Using painting, sculpture, and collaborative works, each artist approaches the theme through a different lens. Cody Justus’ notes on canvas play with the internal struggle of working in the studio. Heather Kaplow’s Tools of the Trade is a rotating display of an object that one may never guess is part of an artist’s creative process. Andrew Fish’s paintings look both inward and outward as abstract figures try to find their way, dissolving in and out of washy backgrounds often bathed in the glow of a computer or iPhone screen. The exhibition is on view through Saturday, January 6th. The Gallery at Atlantic Wharf is open daily to the public from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
