If you missed “Yo! What Happened to Peace” at the Continental Gallery in Downtown LA you missed out. Artists have a history of disagreeing with their government and the Yo! Show brought them together in force to do just that.


“Yo! What Happened to Peace” is a showcase of political poster and propaganda art all made within the last few years. Mostly themed around America and it’s leaders, the war in Iraq, and the petroleum industry, The Yo! Show provides a forum for political artists and activists. The collection reflects a widely accepted public sentiment of frustration with the government’s lack of transparency and accountability.

The show has traveled to locations all over the world including Milan, Reykjavik, Tokyo, Rome, Chicago, Brussels, and Los Angeles. While there’s no word on when or where the next show will be, you can subscribe to the Yo! What Happened to Peace email list for details. The book for this show is really cool, and the cover includes a stencil your extra curricular activities.
Be sure and check out the photos on out flickr feed to see our view of the show.
