November 21, 2019–March 8, 2020

Opening: November 21, 6–8pm

The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation, 17 West 17th Street ,The 8th Floor 

The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation is pleased to present Relational Economies: Labor over Capital, an exhibition that reflects on the impacts of economic crises on different parts of the world and sectors of society, prompting a dialogue about alternatives to the trappings of capitalism.

The third installment of Revolutionary Cycles, a two-year series of exhibitions that explore art’s social and political potential in uncertain times, Relational Economies examines how the economic outcomes of global capitalism transcend borders, while worker’s rights and compensation continue to deteriorate. The artworks in the exhibition collectively focus on the hierarchies of labor and economic status, choreographies of work, the interrelationships between disparate wealth positions, alternative economies and currencies, and the ways in which labor conditions contribute to culture at large.

An opening reception will take place on Thursday, November 21, from 6 to 8 pm at the Rubin Foundation’s exhibition space, The 8th Floor, in New York City.
