Josh Kline (1979 Philadelphia, PA) discusses his recent body of work, Civil War (2017) with Senior Curator Andria Hickey.

Civil War includes large-scale resin sculptures that resemble concrete and look like decaying gray piles of everyday objects such as car parts, stuffed animals, and furniture. Set in a similarly gray, carpeted room, this installation envisions a future influenced by both technological innovation and mass unemployment.

Kline is an artist based in New York City working in sculpture, installation, and video. His early work examined how media, advertising, and the commercial marketplace shape generational cultural norms and expectations. More recently Kline’s projects have grown in scale, looking at the potential future consequences of a 21st-century society overrun by automation, artificial intelligence, and an unstable political environment.

Solo exhibitions of Kline’s work include Civil War, Stuart Shave/Modern Art, London, United Kingdom (2017). He has also participated in group exhibitions including The Sweat of Their Face: Portraying American Workers, Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Washington, D.C. (2017); Cult! Legends, Stars and Icons, Zeppelin Museum, Friedrichshafen, Germany (2017); High Anxiety, Rubell Family Collection, Miami, FL (2016); Human Interest: Portraits from the Whitney’s Collection, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2016); 9th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art: The Present in Drag, Berlin, Germany (2016); Open Source: Art at the Eclipse of Capitalism, Galerie Max Hetzler, Berlin & Paris (2015); 2015 Triennial: Surround Audience, New Museum, New York, NY (2015); and New Pictures of Common Objects, MoMA PS1, Long Island City, NY (2012). Kline has also been involved in a number of curatorial and publishing projects throughout the United States and Europe.
