Beginning November 2nd, on the eve of U.S. national elections, Pace will present Ed Kienholz and Nancy Reddin Kienholz’s monumental installation The Ozymandias Parade (1985), an opulent allegory of the abuse of political power. Whether the parade’s sinister president shows a YES or a NO across his face is the result of a poll conducted in the weeks leading up to the installation’s opening, comprised of just one simple question: “Are you satisfied with your government?”

Click here to vote YES or NO to decide the answer for the November presentation, and visit the exhibition to see the result.
