… I Forgot to Laugh: Humor & Contemporary Art
February 2021 – June 2021
Historically, art has employed humor at the most (in)opportune times. In the face of war, tumult, and cultural change, artists have often reveled in the ridiculous. This exhibition brings together over a dozen contemporary artists that use humor to explore identity, social injustice, and the absurdity of modern life. By subverting expectations through surprising materials, challenging the notion of fine art, and using humor to confront the status quo, these artists show the power of tackling serious topics with levity.
Curators: Amy Bowman-McElhone, PhD; Anna Wall, Chief Curator, Pensacola Museum of Art; Carrie Fonder, Assistant Professor of Art, University of West Florida
