Contact: The Yes Men

Andy Bichlbaum, co-founder of activist group the Yes Men, emerged after 26 hours in New York City's central lockup with all charges against him dismissed.[1]

"The judge just laughed," said Bichlbaum. "The police had a less well-developed sense of humor - and, it turned out, much less regard for the law. But all in all, I'm ecstatic that they arrested me."

SPACE IS THE PLACE

After 42 years of living in the New York Art World, and 9 years working in it, I have decided that it's time to put up a shingle. I'm opening a new art project space in Williamsburg under the name PLAYSPACE. It's located at 38-C Marcy Avenue, entrance on Hope Street, three short blocks and around a corner from the L train at Lorimer Street.
