Kiah Reading presents solo exhibition Be Your Own Boss! at Brisbane’s Metro Arts, which opened September 6 and is running to September 23.
Asking the viewer to “un-work until you’re fired,” the Brisbane/Lima-based artist explores and re-imagines modern corporate language through sound, textiles, robotics and coding. Unpicking the “idea of productivity as an imperative” and interrupting “today’s economic environment,” the work invites the audience to reclaim agency.
Like what you see on AQNB? We’d like to ask you for some help and encouragement by way of a monthly subscription to our Patreon. All funds raised will go directly to editorial commissioning and therefore support our contributors in their excellent work.
It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up. Thank u so much! <3
