Ronald Versus McDonald
Signs, signs, everywhere signs. Unfortunately, most are advertisements, shrill carnival barkers that are constantly forced upon us. Ron English doesnt take this sitting down.
The film POPaganda: The Art and Crimes of Ron English follows the contemporary pop artist as he liberates billboards from their fate as the tentacles of the corporate world. Familiar iconography and logos like those of grub-and-happiness peddler McDonalds get sampled, twisted, and recast with the hope that the double-takes break the early stages of group think.
There will also be a post-screening Q&A with the artist.
