Illegal Art

A exhibition of “illegal art” that appropriates other art and cultural clutter, like corporate logos, is coming to NYC and Chicago. Illegal Art: Freedom of Expression in the Corporate Age is sponsored by Stay Free, an excellent zine-cum-magazine that focuses on issues of intellectual and artistic freedom within a hyper-private-corporatized society. Wired News has an article on it today.

I was thus inspired to reappropriate this piece to my own design:

Mad props to John at from whose logo I’ve shamelessly stolen inspiration.
