The Station Museum of Contemporary Art announces the opening of the exhibition, Corpocracy on Saturday, October 10th at 7p.m.; a group exhibition surveying culture jamming, intervention, satire and viral strategies in relation to capitalism and corporate culture through the works of 13 artists. Corpocracy is the absurd reality of our society in which corporations and their interests are allowed to have dominance over the economic and political systems. Through the subversive imagination, the artist works toward a transformation of social consciousness.
A native of Mexico City, Yoshua Okón’s work is like a series of near-sociological experiments executed for the camera through blending staged situations, documentation and improvisation. He questions habitual perceptions of reality and truth, selfhood and morality. His work is included in the collections of Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou, Hammer Museum, LACMA, Colección Jumex and MUAC, among others. Okón’s piece Freedom Fries is part of this exhibition.
