Event Description

Capital Offenses Exhibit: Money is the Prime Mover of our culture. It dictates the world of business, determines government policy, and even drives our own behavior. Money is a powerful symbol in all societies, and its iconic imagery can be a potent voice of social and political commentary that speaks across all borders. Moneyart is also an inherently transgressive and subversive genre.

Since only governments are allowed to create money, I am appropriating the authority of the government: I am stealing the voice of power to criticize power. As citizens – and consumers – we have all been conditioned since childhood to see the inherent value in these pieces of paper called money, and to treat money with an almost reverent desire. The genre of moneyart uses the visual vocabulary of currency and financial documents to exploit that emotional response, and I use that response to enhance the power of my work and my messages.
