Earlier this month, the street collective TrustoCorp made their debut outside of the USA with a showing at Newcastle-based Outsiders gallery entitled International Bank of TrustoCorp. Bringing their special form of satire and political commentary, the crew put on display a series of works that transformed the gallery into a counterfeit counting house that examined the power of currency. They state: “We’re exploring the power of money in our lives on a local and international level. From the high power gambling of Wall Street to the broken dreams of Main Street USA, money is simultaneously the root of all evil and the solution to all problems. This show is our take on the global effect of greed and the need for money.”
