The White House, in conjunction with the Straight Out Of Brisbane Festival (SOOB),  is excited to announce that New York's most outlandish and subversive media artist - Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung - will be making his Australian debut at The White House with his 'Global Presidential Election' exhibition during the
Straight Out Of Brisbane festival.

Kenneth Hung, New York-based artist and designer, has gained massive international notoriety from his web art project, 60x1.com, which has culminated over 30 million hits since its debut. Hung's cheeky, politically-charged mischief spans the media of interactive web installation, video, sound and performance. He has exhibited prolifically in his own country as well as the UK Italy, France, Switzerland and Germany.

Kenneth Hung occupies The White House to unleash his intoxicated and satirical visions on Brisbane. Hung's hyperactive prints and video explode with surprising calculation to parody, mimic and pervert the visual traditions of advertising and propaganda. A psychedelic blurring of sex, politics and consumer culture – there is a sinister omen lurking behind the humorous, super-shiny veneer of Hung's work: a vision of a world slowly eating itself. This psycho-political wonderland will spawn live performances of warped personas such as Ronald MaoDonald and Jesus Bin Laden. At once beautiful and garish, frightening and hilarious, Hung's Australian premiere is not to be missed.Be sure to check out http://www.111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111.com/ which can also be accessed from Hung's main site, www.tinkin.com

Kenneth Hung will not be touring anywhere else in Australia! Miss this Brisbane show and you may never see him again! Hung will also be presenting talks and master-classes during the Straight Out Of Brisbane festival.  For more information on this festival, visit www.straightoutofbrisbane.com
