"Piss Off: International Artists United by a Heavy Dose of Attitude"
2004-10-02 until 2004-10-30
Museum of New Art
Detroit, , USA United States of America

A sort of intramural road rage, Piss Off! is an exhibition of 30 international artists,- all united by a heavy dose of attitude. "Those last barriers attempting to hold back creative expression are being swept aside, giving way to disorder and fragmentation. In an irreconcilable mirroring of this tumultuous art, the world pushes toward rigid organization and conglomeration," states Jane Speaks in the exhibition essay. MONA's exhibitions, programming, and operations are member-supported and privately funded through contributions from individuals, corporations, and foundations.

"Never has art been so displaced from the culture which informs it. "

"A situation that has spawned artists who defy by defying art itself. A situation that has allowed such artists to shout “piss off!” and, by so doing, allow for a glimpse of a different future for us all."   

- Jane Speaks, from the exhibition essay: PISS OFF! Art With An Attitude.
