On view from September 13 through December 7, 2019 at Black Cube’s newly opened Colorado headquarters, The Fulfillment Center presents commissioned artworks that respond to the hidden aspects of e-commerce logistics. By bringing together 18 local, national, and international contemporary artists, this exhibition considers the changing context of warehouses under the digital economy.

As the global economy grows in tandem with the expanding ecommerce landscape, logistics management and Fulfillment Centers are reshaping our network for buying and receiving consumer goods­. In The Fulfillment Center, artists reflect on a timely subject by investigating and questioning the influences of a rapidly developing, colossal industry. The exhibition weaves together a series of artworks that look at topics such as labor, commodities, shipping and receiving, international relations, and more. In doing so, viewers are asked to contemplate today’s consumerism—its impact and evolution—through the lens of contemporary art.

Exhibiting Artists include: Alejandro Almanza Pereda (Mexico City), Mauricio Alejo (Mexico City), Kate Casanova (Denver), Joseph Coniff (Denver), Jennifer Ling Datchuk (San Antonio), Stephanie Kantor (Philadelphia), Sammy Seung-min Lee (Denver), PLAYLAB, INC. (New York), Adam Milner (New York), Jonathan Fletcher Moore (Los Angeles), Coleman Mummery (Denver), Zach Reini (Denver), SANGREE (Mexico City), Nina Sarnelle (Los Angeles), Laura Shill (Los Angeles), Momoyo Torimitsu (New York), Natalija Vujošević (Montenegro).

The Fulfillment Center was curated by Cortney Lane Stell and will be on view from September 13 – December 7, 2019 at the Black Cube Headquarters (2925 South Umatilla Street, Englewood, CO 80110).
