Steve Lambert, Capitalism Works For Me! True/False, 2011 aluminum and electronics

As an artist/citizen Steve Lambert is interested in dialogue: how discourse exists in the public sphere, and how language can and cannot function in that capacity. To that end, Lambert co-organizes workshops for artists and activists at the Center for Artistic Activism, gives lectures and performances about the convergence of cultural production and political agency, and founded the art group Anti-Advertising Agency, that examines advertising’s effect in public space. As part of his investigation into advertising, Lambert makes signs that take direct aim at marketing language.
