TOURING EXHIBITION

KEEP IT SLICK:
Infiltrating Capitalism
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 PAPERS

NEWS + EVENTS

IN THEATERS

THE YES MEN FIX THE WORLD is a screwball true story about two gonzo political activists who, posing as top executives of giant corporations, lie their way into big business conferences and pull off the world's most outrageous pranks.

From New Orleans to India to New York City, armed with little more than cheap thrift-store suits, The Yes Men squeeze raucous comedy out of all the ways that corporate greed is destroying the planet.


"Outrageously entertaining....This movie is glorious testimony to the moral power of satire." —New York Magazine

"Funnier and more useful than Sacha Baron Cohen's Brüno." —The Observer

"A riotous reminder that patriotism is often misconstrued as troublemaking." —AMC Filmcritic

"Hilarious, therapeutic, inspiring. The Yes Men are geniuses." —Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine and No Logo
