Ronald Versus McDonald

Signs, signs, everywhere signs. Unfortunately, most are advertisements, shrill carnival barkers that are constantly forced upon us. Ron English doesn’t 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 McDonald’s — 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.


Fri., Feb. 8, 7 p.m., 2008
