I'm a laughingstock!

Stevie B. is very happy to be participating in

LAUGHINGSTOCK - Humor in Art & Craft

Luke & Eloy Gallery

5169 Butler Street
Pittsburgh, PA 15201

"Laughingstock: Humor in Art & Craft"
Exhibition: November 15, 2008 - December 23, 2008

We explore how artists use irony, goofiness, satire, and sarcasm in their work. Can humor and satire stimulate laughter as well as serve as a vehicle to explore serious subjects, such as feminism, the natural environment, the excesses of consumer culture, religion, sexuality, social injustice, and war ? Can artwork be "funny" and critical at the same time? How does the artist's choice of materials affect the outcome so that the work is perceived as "funny"? What are the boundaries in humor and who gets to decide what these are?

Are there topics we are not allowed to laugh about ?
