General Information

Curated by Cortney Lane Stell

On view at Black Cube’s newly opened headquarters (BCHQ), The Fulfillment Center presents commissioned artworks that respond to the hidden aspects of ecommerce logistics. By bringing together innovative artworks by 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 world­. In this exhibition, artists reflect on a timely subject, investigating and questioning the influences of a rapidly developing, colossal industry. The Fulfillment Center 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.
