E Pluribus Venom: Shepard Fairey
(50 items available)
E Pluribus Venom collects a large body of work produced by Shepard Fairey and presented at the Jonathan Levine gallery during his massive exhibition in the summer of 2007. It comprises artworks designed to question the symbols and methods of the American machine and American dream and also celebrate those who oppose blind nationalism and war. The artist's thesis is that many becoming one, or a loss of power and influence of the individual in favor of homogeny, is a symptom of a society in decline. The title translates as "Out of many, poison" and is derived from "E Pluribus Unum" (out of money, one), an early motto adopted by the U.S. government which appears on the U.S. currency.
