Ahead of London Fashion Week, Christie’s are hosting a curated evening of aesthetic innovation; trend talks, photography and a new installation created by Diego Fortunato as part of the monthly ‘Christie’s Lates’ after hours event.
“Am I here...? / SAY YES, Absolute Power Spray” is a new installation createdspecifically for the Christie’s Lates event by Argentinean artist Diego Fortunato, as acomment on the global landscape of contemporary politics, dominated by post-truth politics and Trump’s claims of ‘Fake News’.

There is no more perfect setting to introduce ‘SAY YES, Absolute Power Spray’. As if by magic, we all say yes to any proposition after beingsprayed. No more conflicts of any kind on Planet Earth, just everlasting happiness.
