When #research meets #art! Discover how an article on #gender dynamics in 'new offices' inspired international art installation: https://buff.ly/2s135HV.⠀ ⠀ A joint article about the #genderdynamics in open plan offices written by Dr Alison Hirst, angliaruskin, and Dr Christina Schwabenland, uniofbeds, has inspired artist #SondraPerry to create a #video #installation #project commissioned by the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland (moCa), Ohio, #USA.⠀ ⠀ Sondra Perry’s project is titled #ATerribleThing, and whilst developing the project, the artist came across Dr Hirst and Dr Schwabenland’s work. The researchers were then contacted by moCa to grant permission to reprint their article in the upcoming catalogue.⠀ ⠀ Following the initial exhibition in moCa from April to August 2019, A Terrible Thing is now displayed in KunsthalAarhus, #Denmark, until March 2020. Dr Schwabenland and Dr Hirst attended the private viewing last month.⠀ ⠀ The original research article, published in May 2018, has been cited in more than 60 publications including the Washington Post, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the Sydney Morning Herald, and online versions of the Times, Telegraph and HR Digest. It reached over 10m people in just the first two months of its publication.⠀ ⠀ #WednesdayWisdom #work #Office #WiseWednesday #moCa #KunsthalAarhus #artist #museum #gentrification #space #history
