September 23, 2010, 5-8pm, The Yes Men will present at 6:30pm

 

Considered among the most important political artists of this decade, The

Yes Men (Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno) are a group of culture-jamming

activists who practice what they call “Identity Correction.” By posing as

spokespersons for prominent organizations and powerful entities, The Yes

Men create spoof websites and appear in conferences and TV shows to highlight

how corporations and government organizations often act in dehumanizing

ways toward the public.

 

The first-ever traveling solo exhibition of The Yes Men, KEEP IT SLICK

presents The Yes Men's body of work including their elaborate costumes

fabricated for their bold interventions, slapstick videos and PowerPoint

presentations at business conferences, outrageous posters and props,

scripts, sketches, research materials and selected publications and

ephemera from their personal collections.

 

KEEP IT SLICK, Infiltrating Capitalism with The Yes Men is curated by

Astria Suparak, organized by the Feldman Gallery at Pacific Northwest College of

the Arts and the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University. The KEEP IT

SLICK Exhibition Catalogue and Activity Book is for sale at Glass Curtain

Gallery and ShopColumbia.
