Pitt News review of Alien She

“Alien She captures the irrepressible legacy of riot grrrl and avoids reverting to a nostalgic reflection on better days. Instead, it uses the movement as a platform from which a new generation can explore the feminist and queer issues”

City Paper review of 2011 Pittsburgh Biennial

“But in this multi-lensed vision of Pittsburgh’s art scene [the 2011 Pittsburgh Biennial], perhaps no facet has been as ambitious as the Miller show, curated by gallery director Astria Suparak. Comprised of work by five teams of artists, the show focuses on groups approaching social issues, community life and transformation through art-initiated criticism”

Newcity Review of Keep It Slick

“Most of all, the exhibition, titled Keep It Slick, is hands-on and human-sized enough to encourage all of us to be Yes Men, which may be the biggest lesson this show has to offer: we can be agents of positive social change, and Keep It Slick is a beginners manual.”

Texas Observer on Keep It Slick

“Keep It Slick features video of the group’s elaborate agitprop gags, manipulated newspaper headlines and fast-food logos, and interactive ‘conference rooms’ where visitors can read the script of a ‘real’ Yes Men hoax.”

Artforum Critic’s Pick of Keep It Slick

“The Yes Men’s ability to seamlessly blend with and subvert corporate identities engages the public to envision a more just world of commercial and governmental responsibility… The logic behind ‘Keep It Slick’ runs contrary to most exhibitions. Instead of affirming the artists’ originality or craftsmanship, this show is intended to motivate ordinary citizens to themselves become Yes Men through DIY activism and infiltration.”
