Human Resources presents the Los Angeles debut of EJ Hill’s A Subsequent Offering, an adaptation of his work, A Monumental Offering of Potential Energy, first exhibited at The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York. From July 14 to October 30, 2016, Hill lied atop a wooden platform within an installation resembling a classic wooden roller coaster. Throughout the run of the exhibition, visitors could find the artist performing silently and near-motionless during all open hours of the Museum, totaling just over 500 hours.

The 41-feet long sculpture will be recontextualized for exhibition during a new moment with the same pressing cultural concerns. This iteration of the work is part of Hill’s continued commitment to authoring spaces for marginalized bodies to position and view themselves in places of elevation.
