Tonight I’ll be appearing on a panel titled “Comedy and Art“, alongside some of the funniest people the art world has to offer: Jibz Cameron (aka Dynasty Handbag), Guy Richards Smit (aka Grossmalerman), Christian Viveros-Fauné, and Ben Davis. I’ve accomplished nothing to earn this, it’s just that Paddy couldn’t make it. Woohoo!!
Anyway, I expect we’ll be interrogating comedy’s appropriate place in the liminal space between postmodernism and the hyper professionalized MFAed art world. How do we be funny? These people know more about that than I do, so I’m posting a Dynasty Handbag GIF and “Santa Baby” performance below. And make sure you watch Grossmalerman, who may or may not be appearing in full on swaggering drunk character this evening.
