Eyelevel Gallery launches its offsite exhibition program by taking the 6th Printed Matter Biennale on the road. Eyelevel Reshelving Initiative 6: Labour & Leisure will pack into a rented car and tour artist-run centres in the Atlantic Region. We will host and participate in a variety of programming in each location—artist’s talks, critical dinners, performances, peer-to-peer discussions, interviews, and drop-ins. 

What does 'productivity' mean in an art context? In an industrial context, the word refers to increased production with the goal of profit. How do we discuss productivity as artists—and other post-industrial workers? ERI 6: Labour & Leisure proposes the production of printed matter and multiples as a strategy for re-imagining hands-on work as both leisure and labour. Both casual and critical, the content of the exhibition and its structure consider these issues.
