Releases "The Yes Men Activity Book"
PITTSBURGH—The Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University announces the release of "The Yes Men Activity Book," featuring do-it-yourself activities by the artist-activist group The Yes Men, with full-color illustrations of their recent projects, essays and interviews.
The Yes Men gained international notoriety for daring political pranks and posing as top executives of the world's biggest and most powerful multi-national corporations.
The book includes cut-out "Make Your Own Press Passes," a way for people to act as representatives of the media, sewing instructions to "Build Your Own SurvivaBall," a pull-out poster titled "How Identity Correction Works" and detailed notes how to be a Yes Man.
Activity book contributors include The Yes Men; John Byrne, Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez of the radio program "Democracy Now!;" Mack McFarland; Laura Sillars and Astria Suparak, director of the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon. "The Yes Men Activity Book" was created in connection with The Yes Men's first survey and internationally touring exhibition "Keep It Slick: Infiltrating Capitalism with The Yes Men" and their award-winning feature film "The Yes Men Fix The World." Co-published by Columbia College Chicago, the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon and the Feldman Gallery at Pacific Northwest College of Art, "The Yes Men Activity Book" is full color and retails for $12 in the Miller Gallery Store and online at www.cmu.edu/millergallery/store.php.
