Ogilvy New York presents: Yo! What Happened To Peace?

Yo! What Happened to Peace?

Ogilvy New York is excited to present for a limited time, "Yo! What Happened To Peace?," a powerful collection of artistic social commentary and a reaffirmation of Ogilvy’s position as a leading supporter of the progressive arts. As a globalist, David Ogilvy values his understanding the world his customers live in and this value extends to a broader world-view encompassing statements and stances when they are of the most significance.

As a perfect fit for Ogilvy New York, Yo! What Happened to Peace? started in 2003 with 14 prints and an opening hosted by Cross World Connections in Tokyo. Committed to highlighting the beauty of hand-crafted printmaking techniques as a method of visual protest, the show has traveled the globe continuously adding new artists and artwork. In the spring of 2007, a Yo! What Happened to Peace? book was published, featuring 144 color pages of over 200 prints from the show, a die-cut stencil cover and an introduction by Winston Smith. Currently based in Los Angeles, the show is put together by John Carr (curator), Katherine Kirby (coordinator), Ra (operations), and Caton Volk (producer).

Yo! What Happened To Peace? includes hand-crafted prints from across the globe, with the majority of prints by American artists and printmakers. Yo! What Happened To Peace? has traveled throughout the United States, with openings in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, Cambridge, MA and Charleston, SC. The Yo! What Happened To Peace? show has also held numerous international exhibitions, including London, Stockholm, Rome, Milan, Brussels, Reykjavik and Tokyo.

From July 17th through September 17th, Ogilvy New York will be presenting Yo! What Happened To Peace? At an internal gallery space housed in their New York offices. To celebrate this limited run, there will be an opening night event featuring live screen-making, music, an artist book signing, and more, with some of the exhibition’s talented artists in attendance, including John Carr, Karen Fiorito, Contra, Hugh Gran, Kyle Goen, Seth Tobocman, Luba Lukova and Garrison Buxton, to name only a few.

About Ogilvy New York Arts: Ogilvy New York has always been a strong supporter of the Arts, and over the course of a year, has focused on a growing list of curated shows within the agency itself. With a consistent rotation of top artistic talent, including the works of Shepard Fairey, as a result of working closely with top galleries, such as Jonathan LeVine Gallery, the agency ensures an interesting, and at times provocative, line of work aiming to inspire thought and infuse discussion. Works on display on the walls of the agency's 12 floors include Thunderdog Studios, Mint & Serf, Friends with You, Cannonball Press, Bilderklub, Mark Dean Veca, Chris Scarborough with The Foley Gallery, Yee Haw Industries, Henrik Krundsen, Moshe Brakha, Kenji Aoki, The Art Student’s League of New York with a view to the following shows opening in the summer Yo!
