This weekend, anti-advertising activists around the world came together for the second annual Subvert The City, a weekend of action to reclaim public space organized by Subvertisers International. So, we thought we'd join in the fun with a series of installs.

Our friends at Special Patrol Group sent us two designs. The READ ME poster pretty succinctly sums up SPG's position on outdoor advertising, and ours as well: Get rid of it. And their #Justice4Grenfell poster is a reminder that the UK government continues to neglect the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire, and the response would likely be the same if a similar tragedy occurred in this country.

We also had a few spare posters from last year, and this seemed like the perfect time to finally get those installed: One previously unused poster from Jon Burgerman (at the top of this post), and spare prints of posters by Jess X. Snow, Molly Crabapple, and Sheryo & The Yok.

PS, be on the lookout for more Art in Ad Places installations, with new work, soon.
