After debuting to a tremendous crowd in Portland, Oregon, the first-ever survey exhibition of renowned activist-artists The Yes Men opens Friday, Nov. 14th at the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. Kicking off the East Coast debut of Keep It Slick: Infiltrating Capitalism with The Yes Men is a "How To Be A Yes Man" Workshop with sneak peaks of their upcoming film, The Yes Men Fix The World. Then ease into our Business Casual Reception with Yes Men Mike Bonanno and Andy Bichlbaum, from 6–8pm.

Following weeks of stellar press reviews and years of crisscrossing the nation, Julia Christensen (also known to be a Yes Man) will present a lecture and sign copies of her new book, Big Box Reuse, on Thursday, Nov. 13th at 4:30pm. Meet the artist and check out her related solo exhibition, Your Town, Inc.,

The Yes Men are among the most visible and effective activist-artists of our time, reaching countless people through websites, newspapers, and television broadcasts. Over the past decade they 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.

This survey represents the first-ever solo exhibition of The Yes Men. Here you can walk into a re-creation of their past exploits in the Conference area, witness a comically apocalyptic future, and pay your respects to a janitor who generously donated his body to satisfy our insatiable energy needs. In the Executive Board Room, you may browse through The Yes Men’s personal office items and orate along to their absurd PowerPoint presentations
Keep It Slick was organized by the Feldman Gallery at Pacific Northwest College of Art + Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University.
