A multitude of must-see performances and exhibits.
Join the University of Houston Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts for the 2017 Mitchell Artist Lecture, a landmark public program that annually features major figures in the world of artistic collaboration. This year’s speakers are artists and political activists, Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno, known together as The Yes Men. They've been doing "identity correction" or "laughtivism" for nearly two decades. By impersonating leaders and big corporations who put profits ahead of everything else, The Yes Men publicly humiliate them and expose their criminal practices. They've made three award-winning feature films about their actions, and gained international notoriety for impersonating big businesses on international TV and conferences around the world.
