Tony Garifalakis
Mob rule

12 Jun – 21 Aug 2014

Location: Contemporary project space

Free admission

Tony Garifalakis is an artist whose work investigates political, social and religious systems of belief while questioning mechanisms of surveillance, compliance and control.

In Mob rule a selection of commercial prints, posters and advertisements have been modified and altered by a process used by government agencies to censor sensitive material in declassified documents.

The exhibition considers this process of ‘censorship’ as a strategy for eliminating meaning and shifting the context of the visual information.

Free admission
