STEVE LAMBERT speaker primary Photo Credit Girl Ray CC BY NC SA [etbagency(dot)org]Steve Lambert is an artist working at the intersection of art, popular culture, comedy, hacktivism and cultural agitation.

Lambert made international news after the 2008 US election with a collaboratively produced New York Times “Special Edition” that announced the end of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. In the Summer of 2011 he began a national tour of Capitalism Works For Me! True/False – a 9 x 20ft sign allowing people to vote on whether capitalism worked for them. He has collaborated with the Yes Men, the Graffiti Research Lab and Greenpeace. He is the founder of the Center for Artistic Activism, the Anti-Advertising Agency, Add-Art (a Firefox add-on that replaces online advertising with art) and SelfControl, a tool which grownups may use to block themselves from distracting websites so they can get work done.

Lambert’s projects and art works have won awards from Prix Ars Electronica, Rhizome/The New Museum, the Creative Work Fund, Adbusters Media Foundation, the California Arts Council, and others. Lambert’s work has been shown everywhere from museums to protest marches nationally and internationally, featured in over fourteen books and four documentary films, and is in the collections of The Sheldon Museum, the Progressive Insurance Company, and The Library of Congress.
