Show summary:

“We want folks to get mad about corporate disinformation, injustices in the global economy, and any industry that pollutes our physical or mental commons. Looking for the radical transformations needed for a collective future … a future that computes at an economic, ecological and spiritual level.” source AdBusters

“Guns and Money” is the third installment in the CultureJam MKE Series. With all of the economic disparity and violence going on in the Milwaukee area, this was a subject that had to be addressed. ​See a thought provoking exhibition of critical works by over 30 outstanding local artists challenging dominant notions of the relationship between human beings and their physical and mental environment.

Highlights of the show are sure to include. “Tableau is the Sincerest Form of Mockery” an installation by the artists C. Matthew Luther, Robert Meincke, and Jared Patton Plock.​In 2012 the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms set up a phony business in Riverwest called Fearless Distributing. This installation reframes the botched ATF event as a reflection of failure and humor mimicking the blunders of the ATF. Artist Valaria Tatera will create a temporary installation that utilizes multiplicity of ceramic bullets to objectify, adorn and create tension by showcasing the dark beauty. Lastly the founder of CultureJam MKE, Jeff Redmon, will create a large comic strip piece titled “A Time For Change” about the senseless killing of Dontre Hamilton on April 30th, 2014 in Milwaukee’s Red Arrow Park.

Experience the power of art and roll it plays in our ever­changing culture. Come out to connect, comment, discuss and enjoy this no­holds­barred exploration of Milwaukee art and artists’ cultural commentary.

Guns and Money will take place at 228 S. 1st. St., Milwaukee, WI 53404, on Saturday, May 2nd, 2015, 7pm – 12am. One night only!
