How exactly, and to what extent does class play a role in the production, direction, criticality and dissemination of contemporary art? Lapdogs of the Bourgeoisie is an ambitious, year-long exhibition and research project led by Gasworks and touring to other institutions internationally in 2007. The project investigates the latent issue of class underlying contemporary art. It is an open question, an invitation to a discussion long overdue, and offers no foregone conclusions other than the relevance of class itself.

Curated by Nav Haq and Tirdad Zolghadr, Lapdogs of the Bourgeoisie will present a series of exhibitions and events, as well as concurrently commissioning research into the subject. The projects will involve a number of newly commissioned works specifically produced for the context of each location.
