Long interested in the politics of industry and craft production and its relationship to globalization and capitalism, San Francisco artist Stephanie Syjuco’s project “Empire/Other” furthers her explorations into the seemingly opposing sites of the handmade and the virtual, in order to ask how society can come to terms with the friction of history within the contemporary world.

Arbeid examines the attitude that various artists occupy in relation to artistic labour. The exhibition provides the impetus to develop alternative models that ensure that the art workplace is better adapted to the changing needs and realities of being an artist. Four artists carry the theme in various ways through work that was conceived during a residency at FLACC.
