The Anti-Advertising Agency was a collaboration between myself and dozens of other artists working on the themes of advertising and public space. I planned on running the project for one year and in that time the AAA project exceeded my expectations in every way. Over the last six years I’ve worked with some amazing people, made things we never thought possible, and even removed a few billboards.
Since 2004 much has happened for myself as well. Today I have new projects that need my attention. This coming year I’m working on an upcoming solo show at Charlie James Gallery, co-writing a book with Stephen Duncombe, my Regular Full Time Faculty position at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, continuing to develop and lead workshops with Creative Capital, and co-directing the the School for Creative Activism.
I’ve featured some selected projects below. The AAA research blog will continue, and I have some ideas up my sleeve for a book/video series on advertising, but the Agency lies in wait for the appropriate moment to reawaken. Until then, I hope you will stay in touch via visitsteve.com/contact.
