Josh Kline (b. 1979, Philadelphia; lives New York) launches a series of three solo exhibitions that respond to The Big Nothing.

In recent years, Kline has developed a body of work about the body and labor in the twenty-first century. Speculating on capitalism as perhaps the ultimate big nothing in our society, Kline has created a new two-part project for ICA@50 that looks at a FedEx delivery worker and his identity as a laborer in our economy.
