Situation Comedy: Humor in Recent Art is the featured catalogue of the week. From now until July 24, Situation Comedy is only $5.00 plus tax and shipping at ICI’s Online Book Store. Admit it: youve sometimes wanted to laugh at contemporary art. The leveling power of humor in Situation Comedy is used to break down the barriers of taste and to question authority at every turn. The comedic approaches employed by the artists in this exhibition range from existential wit to ridiculous slapstick, often serving as a foil for more substantive questions about current events, the human condition, and the art world itself. Includes an essay by curators Dominic Molon and Michael Rooks and an excerpt of Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris. Artists: Stephanie Brooks, Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset, Luis Gispert, Felix Gmelin, Tom Friedman, Rodney Graham, Christian Jankowski, Martin Kersels, Alexej Koschkarow, Peter Land, Cary Liebowitz, Kelly Mark, Dave Muller, Laura Nova, William Pope.L, Richard Prince, David Robbins, Kay Rosen, Erika Rothenberg, Dana Schutz, Lawrence Seward, David Shrigley, Bob and Roberta Smith, Michael Smith, Susan Smith-Pinelo, Tony Tasset, John Waters, Olav Westphalen, Erwin Wurm 2005. 72 pages, 32 color illustrations, 8 x 10.
