We talk about work endlessly. But what is "work"? Where do our ideas about it come from?


Speculating on the unspoken cost of work in Victorian & Austerity Britain, this exhibition—Curated by Professor Andrew King and Connie Gallagher—explores the continuing influence of Victorian ideas about ‘work’.

Displaying images from Victorian periodicals and trade magazines alongside research by Professor Andrew King and featured artworks from Catherine Hoffman, Emmanuelle Loiselle, Sarm Miccichè and ‘Home is not My Home’ by Dr Joyce Jiang, Tassia Kobylinska & The Voice of Domestic Workers, this exhibition – by turns beautiful, heroic, shocking, comforting, unsettling – wants to get us to think about what work really means.

Location: Stephen Lawrence Gallery, 10 Stockwell Street, SE10 9BD
