Art Wanted: The Hidden Apparatus is at Us!!!

San Francisco: Artists' Television Access, 1989. Vintage flyer, created circa 1989, calling for art submissions to the 1990 exhibition "The Big 'War on Drugs' Lie Series," held at Artists' Television Access (ATA) in San Francisco, and sponsored by Not A Pretty Picture Productions.

Featuring an illustration of a skull with an Uncle Sam hat, a skeleton hand holding drug paraphernalia, and police, the flyer calls for "art makers" to submit an art piece or a performance proposal "exposing the 'War on Drugs' to public scrutiny." The exhibition was held at ATA from January 5-31, 1990, and included public forums and film screenings.

Formed in 1986, the ATA is a San Francisco-based, artist-run nonprofit, which promotes underground and experimental art, as well as providing a screening venue for independent films, exhibitions, performances, workshops, and events.

Not A Pretty Pictures Productions was founded by filmmakers Kathy Dodd and Sharon Stevens.
