The premier of Corporation will be held on Thursday, October 13, 2016 and will run through November 13, 2016.
Georges Berges Gallery announces an election year exhibition that highlights some of the most pressing issues facing American’s today through the medium of art and humor. The premier of the solo exhibition by Corp Cru will debut a series of original works of art titled “Corporation”.
In its debut, Corp Cru has created a series of 50 original works depicting a parody of the cost of living confined in a provocatively expressed immersive exhibition.
Corporation features a series of 50 original mixed media works that features Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen as the subject of an immersive and familiar game exhibit where players draw cards and take pieces from her.
Corporation expresses Chairman Yellen’s daunting task of balancing economic equilibrium and all of its inherent implications in the pursuit economic freedom for corporations and consumers in a hilariously expressed, highly provocative parody of the cost of living confined within the traditional and familiar board game.
As a neutral official of the largest, most powerful monetary institution on earth, Chairman Yellen faces pressure from consumers, Congress, the White House, the banking industry and the corporate world. As players draw “credit” and “debit” cards to take pieces of her, she is rewarded with beauty and an opportunity for pleasure.
The “Debit Cards” and “Credit Cards” are a series of twenty-four 24” x 48” canvas renderings expressed in controversial fashion from two perspectives; the haves and the have nots. Each Credit and Debit Card renders an image of the corresponding twelve sculptures that represent elements of the cost of living and controversial public issues and gives players the chance at freedom from economic enslavement by successfully removing one of the twelve 8”-10″ sculptures from Chairman Yellen’s body on the 8’ x 4’ mixed media game board. Touching the metal sides of the cavity containing the sculptures with the 24” tweezers will play a unique sound and will cause Chairman Yellen to react in a provocative manner.
Each of the twelve sculptures represent the largest elements of the cost of living as well as some of the most controversial social and political issues. Corporation renders a provocative and hilarious immersive expression of socioeconomic and political issues and provides players opportunity for reclamation and freedom from economic enslavement, as Chairman Yellen and her Federal Reserve Board of Governors attempt to balance the largest economy in the world.
