Celebrate Laziness

Mixed media, 2017, 54"w x 9.5"h x 4.25"d

Celebrate Laziness grapples with our capacity to inhabit space and time unproductively, despite the fact that we are embedded in a capitalist social form that is predicated on productivity. It questions the extent to which we can replace the anxiety-inducing desire for productivity with a different, more positive structure of feeling that lets us enjoy acts of laziness or lethargy. When leisure time is capitalized, can we be congratulated and awarded for our laziness? Does lethargy escape productivity or allow us to be ambivalent toward it?

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
