25 September – 25 October 2009
AND Festival will present the very first UK solo exhibition of the most important political artists of the last decade. The show will also involve opportunities for interaction with The Yes Men themselves.
“Over the past decade The Yes Men have fearlessly taken on the world’s biggest corporations and bureaucracies. Infiltrating the elite realm of the influential and the moneyed, cloaked in the sheerest layer of authority–thrift-store suits, quick-print business cards, forged press releases–these social activators urge us to question where ethics belong in our capitalist-driven society.” – Curator, Astria Suparak
This part of the AND Festival programme is created in collaboration with Liverpool John Moores University, and curated by Astria Suparak, director of Carnegie Mellon University’s Miller Gallery, Pittsburgh.
