The "Humor Us" art exhibition

Wednesday, September 05, 2007

This looks pretty interesting and runs from September 14 ‘07 through December 30 ‘07 at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery:

humor us presents over one hundred works in a variety of media by twenty Asian American artists with ties to Southern California. They display strategies of play, irony, foolery, parody, and satire, with works ranging from the delightfully silly or kitschy, to those that deploy humor as forms of social engagement and critique. The exhibition as a whole seeks to create a context in which these manifestations, as well as the reception of humor, can be explored and even challenged.”
