To Do / To See: Lawrence Lek: Play Station

Head to the Whitechapel Gallery for a conversation between curator Fatos Üstek and artist Lawrence Lek. In reference to Lek’s commission Play Station, a video game ‘job simulator’ where all labour is disguised as leisure, they will be discussing the future of employment in an increasingly automated society.

This talk is taking place tomorrow (06 July 2017) at 7pm at the Whitechapel Gallery in the Zilkha Auditorium. We are sure it will be worth the £9.50 (£7.50 concession). Make sure to book your tickets here straight away.

Artist Lawrence Lek lives and works in London. He is recipient of the Jerwood/FVU Award 2017, the Tenderflix/Tenderpixel Artist Video Award 2015 and the Dazed Emerging Artist Award 2015. His work includes gaming software, video, installation and performance.


THECUBE London has a vivid interest in the arts as it can often be a window in some of the most urgent questions society is engaging with. Lawrence Lek is no exception at all – asking questions which are often discussed between our workspace members and at our events.
