Millay Alum Mauro Zamora's New Show

Parallax View
PLM associates
September 7 – 30, 2012
Vox Populi Gallery
319 North 11th Street

Gallery Talk:
Sunday, September 16th, 3pm with Paddy Johnson, Artfagcity

Special Performance September 23rd, 2pm:
by Ina Polis, PLMA's Davenport Predator Material Transfer
Agreement/Discussion with Mary Ebeling, Assistant Professor of Sociology, Drexel University 

Working in a multidisciplinary practice that includes graphic design, drawing, video, and installation, artists Anita Allyn & Mauro Zamora probe the dark side of international business practices. Posing as PLM Associates, Allyn & Zamora’s fictional private contracting firm provides end-capital solutions for wealthy individuals, multinational corporations and governments. PLM Associates helps clients assert their dominance in the market while taking advantage of the current political climate.

For their first exhibition Allyn and Zamora offer the boardroom as a loci of abstraction, where campaigns, schemes, meetings and covert planning take place. PLM associates' boardroom serves as a defunct stage where the visuality of corporate rhetoric plays out in secret. Through this project Allyn & Zamora reflect corporate rhetoric and values to call attention to the impermeable facade of the capitalist structure while highlighting a rupture of capitalism itself.
