USA Today: Contemporary Political Satire Group Exhibition + Zine Release

Ian McGillivray Noah Lyon Marshall Weber & Fred Rinne Jack Laughner Heather Benjamin Haley Shibble Ryan Jacob Smith

In an age of riot and revolution the cynical observers’ growing dissatisfaction with the government and media manifests itself through many forms in everyday life. We see political satire and activism dispersed through various internet platforms, in print, on the streets, and even in mainstream media. Political satire is a necessary time-honored tradition that inherently abandons formality and censorship. USA Today explores a captivating slice of this fluctuating medium, showcasing sarcastic social commentary in contemporary art.

USA Today is the ninth in a series of group exhibitions dedicated to providing self-publishing artists, who generally share their work through zines and other printed matter, with a platform for exhibition, experimentation and exploration outside of the printed format. Curated by Aimee Lusty.
