Commissioned by LGP for a series of ongoing residencies, the poster deconstructs notions of art’s autonomy, emphasizing the apparatus of its appearance and the conduits of its circulation, where women are marshalling their individual cultural, social and erotic capital in the prestige field of art. Actualising the commercial and economic structures of the art world, the research extends the gender critique of cultural work in neo-liberalisation.
C21ST ART-WORKER was produced during Alison Jones and Milly Thompson's residency at LGP. Riso printed posters were exhibited in the exhibition 'Stolen planks from under the bourgeois phalanx', and a public adboard displayed in Coventry City centre. The poster was further developed for a Deptford X offsite project, ‘C21ST ART-WORKER/ÉVASIONISTA EST ARRIVÉE’, 2015 in anticipation of the publication 'Alison Jones & Milly Thompson C21ST RECENT HISTORY', 2016 for the exhibition at Filet 'Alison Jones & Milly Thompson C21ST RECENT HISTORY Valentines Day'.
