Made in China™

Made in China is an exhibit laced with a collection of counterfeit pieces, fake replicas of other artists’ work but with a tongue-in-cheek twist. For their debut 1AM Gallery show, XEME and SINIC appropriated imagery and style from big names like Banksy, Haring, Fairey, Murakami, and Warhol, and inject their own flavor and humor. The collection ultimately calls into question the nature of authorship and authenticity. The idea of ownership in the graffiti art world has always been sketchy, but XEME and SINIC’s work goes beyond the art world providing a social commentary on consumerism at large.
