Movement Materials, Andrew Norman Wilson
An artist interested in the systems, people and processes underpinning digital culture, Andrew Norman Wilson will talk about his work as part of the Gallery's digital programme.
Andrew Norman Wilson is an artist and ex Google employee. His video Workers Leaving the Googleplex investigates the marginalized class of Google Books’ "ScanOps" workers at their international headquarters in Silicon Valley while simultaneously chronicling the complex events surrounding his own dismissal from the company.
In this talk Andrew Norman Wilson will experiment with corporate, academic and artistic presentation techniques to explore projects such as Workers Leaving the Googleplex and ScanOps. His talk will address medium-specificity and histories of film/video, photography and publishing media, emphasizing the materiality of both analog and digital media and the labor processes they entail.
In 2013 Andrew Norman Wilson participated in Image Employment at MoMA PS1, To Look is To Labor through CCS Bard/Basilica Hudson with Harun Farocki and Lucy Raven, Palazzo Peckham at the 55th Venice Biennale, Art Basel with Art Metropole, and group shows at Betonsalon in Paris, Steve Turner Contemporary in Los Angeles, and Carroll / Fletcher in London. He was recently an artist in residence at Impakt in Utrecht and at the Headlands Center in Sausalito, California. His work has been featured in Aperture, Artforum, DIS Magazine, and Tank Magazine. Wilson currently lives and works in New York.
