Opening Saturday, March 8 at Storefront Ten Eyck, New York is “Spitball,” a group exhibition that brings together various ways in which comedy manifests itself in the studio practice and is translated into art making strategies, co-organized by Progress Report. These artists cross categorical boundaries through material and absurdest content by creating the visual equivalent of what goes into the writing and delivery of a really good joke. By turning familiar expectations on their head, the exhibition looks at parallels behind what makes work that garners a genuine reaction by articulating the ridiculous subject at hand. Artists include Joshua Abelow, Inna Babaeva, Brian Belott, Amanda Browder, Ernesto Burgos, Andy Cross, Matthew Deleget, Valerie Hegarty, Christopher K. Ho, Grant Huang, Jamian Juliano-Villani, John O’Connor, Sara Greenberger Rafferty, Erik Schoonebeek, and Adam Parker Smith.
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 8, 2014. 6-9pm
“Spitball” is on view through April 6, 2014.
