press release

Opening Reception: Thursday, November 20th, 6-8pm Closing Reception: Saturday, January 17th, 6-8pm

Funny Not Funny is an exhibition of artworks and performances that deal with the language, content, and representation of humor in overt and subtle ways. Artists who incorporate wit, absurdity, or satire into their practice create and confront the challenge of making serious work with humorous content, and question our understanding of “what is funny”. The exhibition aims to reveal the careful balance of levity and intellectual rigor inherent to works by artists who take the risk of using the language of humor in a discipline that is not a joke. Performances by Rachel Mason, Shana Moulton, and Cintra Wilson will take place on the night of the opening reception and on the night of the closing reception., Curated By Becky Smith and Allison Kave,
