For Curators' Circle members at the Director's Circle and above.

Dollar bills and coins, with their idealized portraits of leaders, emblems of national identity and heavily policed production, are an extension of state authority in hand-held form. For more than two centuries, artists and individuals alike have taken out their discontent with governments on that money – punching it, scratching it, overprinting and even digitally manipulating it.
