There's 3 reasons I'm writing today:
- I have a solo show in LA (including the sign) and you're invited.
- I wanted to share a sound recording
- I have good news
Capitalism Works For Me! True/False is part of a massive solo show I am mounting for September and October at Charlie James Gallery in Los Angeles.
I will be there for a special "preview reception" on September 8th from 6-9pm.
The public opening is September 15th 7-10pm. I will not be at the public opening because I will be launching the second Capitalism sign in Holland!

Pictures of the install
The sign is so big we had to build a custom scaffolding to mount it. The original is too big to fit in the gallery. Whoops!
I fell asleep among the crates. Those are my feet. I was jetlagged, not lazy.
Listen to students talk about capitalism
Below you can hear a short excerpt of me talking to high school students in Boston when we brought the sign to their school. We were mobbed by students so I tried to engage and provoke them as best I could as individuals moved forward in the crowd. I felt more like a carnival barker then ever before. It was lots of fun and I remember saying some pretty bizarre things to get the students to slow down and think.
My special lady partner Victoria Estok was nice enough to record all this sound.
Sound player is the black bar below...
The good news is
I think the catalog went to the printer. Rewards begin soon...
See you Saturday in Los Angeles!
