"Work Ethic" at Baltimore Museum of Art

BALTIMORE.- The Baltimore Museum of Art presents today “Work Ethic,” on view through January 4, 2004. Since the 1960s, artists have been hard at work— pushing the limits of what can be considered art. This fall, the BMA presents a provocative exhibition of contemporary art that challenges the rules of the workplace and the art world.

Through interactive installations, film and video recordings of artists’ groundbreaking performances, iconic paintings, and documentary photographs, Work Ethic challenges our notions of what art can be.  See familiar masterpieces by artists such as Andy Warhol, Frank Stella, and Robert Rauschenberg, and new works by the artists they influenced—more than eighty works by an international group of artists.

Divided into four sections—Artist at Worker, Artist as Manager, Artist as Experience Maker, and Quitting Time—Work Ethic shows how there has been a fundamental shift in the role of the artist—and what is considered art—with the emergence of the Information Age. Work Ethic is organized by The Baltimore Museum of Art.

The exhibition will travel to premiere contemporary art venues around the country, including the Des Moines Art Center in Iowa (May 15, 2004-August 1, 2004) and the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio (September 17, 2004-January 2, 2005).

Work Ethic is made possible by an Emily Hall Tremaine Exhibition Award and a grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Additional support is provided by Howard S. Brown, Suzanne F. Cohen, Nancy Dorman and Stanley Mazaroff, Fifth Floor Foundation, the Friends of Modern Art at The Baltimore Museum of Art, and Katherine Hardiman.
