KEEP IT SLICK:
with The Yes Men
Organized by Feldman Gallery at Pacific Northwest
College of Art + Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University
"Curated by Astria Suparak, Keep It Slick: Infiltrating
Capitalism with The Yes Men is a timely acknowledgment
of the work of Mike Bonanno and Andy Bichlbaum, two of the great
social satirists of our time...
It seems strangely anathema to even exhibit the work of such artists/provocateurs
as The Yes Men in a gallery setting. In stark contrast to artists
who present discreet issue-based work in the modest environment
of a contemporary art gallery for its modest audience—The Yes Men
ply their trade and make their points across the entire terrain
of consumer culture. For the past several years, they have—as the
exhibition’s title suggests— infiltrated that culture repeatedly
in a seriocomic gesture of speaking truth to corporate power...
The exhibition’s pointed installation hits it just right.
Rather than mold The Yes Men’s activist artwork into a discreet,
restrained presentation, Suparak gets into its spirit—both its serious
underbelly and its consciously foppish exterior."
—John Massier, Visual Arts Curator, Hallwalls Contemporary Arts
Center, for ART
