The conceptual artist and author of the McSweeney’s book “All Known Metal Bands” explore the culture and aesthetics of the world of corporations and day jobs in a wide-ranging interdisciplinary show.
Based on Nelson’s experience working at a successful start-up in Emeryville from 2009-2015, the show explores the culture and aesthetics of the corporate world in a wide-ranging show with over 120 works of video, photography, sound art, text-based works, posters, sculptures, interactive pieces, and paintings.
A limited-edition 64-page book of the same name will be launched at the show’s opening, which includes photographs taken in offices and warehouses, corporate haiku written during long meetings, spam email promotions, digital collages, office humor, and more.
The book and the gallery show highlight a number of current themes in American life: corporatism, neo-liberalism, greed, boredom, chaos, futility, plastic, cardboard, dysfunctional hierarchies, and the color beige.
