Today: Two Men Walk Into An Artwork
This week The Yes Men are giving a talk at the University of Houston about their performance art/political satire/social activism. We’re looking forward to it. Poking around their website reminded us of the work of other pairs of artist dudes whose work makes a point, whether it be about marketing and consumerism, national identity, the crafting of the male image, the ugly underbelly of the art world, or just awesome, glittery, soft gay porn.
