NEW WORK FROM three acclaimed artists tackle politics and religion in Irvine Contemporary’s gutsy mid-October show. Street artist Shepard Fairey presents political paintings and collage, including a subversive rendering of the $1 bill.

Al Farrow‘s gun-and-human-bone sculptures of religious shrines comment on the militarism in religion, and Paul D. Miller‘s (also known as DJ Spooky) satirical multimedia project includes postcards and a video on Antarctica’s suppressed political history.
