Fully Exploited Labour
21 October – 26 November 2006
University of Queensland Art Museum
The work of Pat Hoffie has consistently maintained a political edge. The exhibition includes a selection of work exhibited by Hoffie under the banner of ‘Fully Exploited Labour’ and focuses on the processes by which artworks are made. In producing this series, Hoffie worked with a range of artists, artist groups and communities in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. This series poses questions about how tiers of value and significance are ascribed to particular types of cultural production.
This survey exhibition brings together works that have been exhibited previously at the Fukuoka City Art Exhibition; The Australia Centre, Manila and Baguio Arts Festival, Philippines; Kwang Ju Art Symposium, Korea; Queensland Art Gallery, Institute of Modern Art and Brisbane Powerhouse, Brisbane; Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney; and Adelaide Art Festival. A monograph on this series, edited by Dr. Sally Butler, was published by University of Queensland Art Gallery.
