What's black & white & protested all over?

A panda rip-off, that's what!

From what I can garner from the text below the above (hah) photo on Flickr, an artist reappropriated the design from this "When Pandas Attack" Threadless T-shirt and displayed it without any sort of credit in a gallery show (as you can see in the background above). So, a group of people protested the act by showing up at the gallery en masse, wearing the original design (or an original panda suit, take your pick).

(The show seems to be rather panda-themed, in the whole--it's up at Gavin Brown's Enterprise in NYC, if you want to take a looksee.)
