FUNNY (not funny)
Recent Comic Art Exhibiting Signs of Black Humor
Curated by Ryan Standfest

The "FUNNY (not funny)" exhibition seeks to elicit uncomfortable laughter in the realm of black humor-- a place where the serious and the taboo are fodder for comic provocation. Artists in numerous media have long sought to overturn convention and challenge what is funny with what is not as a means of producing humor out of the unlikeliest of situations. Work by the twenty artists that will be on view in "FUNNY (not funny)", demonstrates that cartooning is keeping the tradition of black humor alive and flourishing. The very form of the comics page itself is as relevant a vehicle as ever, freed from so many of the commercial restrictions placed on other art forms, to effectively deliver potent images and narratives that carry with them a very immediate and accurate measure of the absurdity of our age. A catalog of the exhibition is forthcoming.

I don't think Jack Kerouac was too worried about his light and whtheer he had organic things like a ball of rubber bands (huh?) in front of him in order to write. However, she's trying. She's trying my patience! Ba-rum-bum!
