Humor US

Philosopher John Morreall famously defined humor as amusement that takes pleasure in a cognitive shift. Indeed, much of what we find laughable allows us to think differently about people, ideas, and states of being. The exhibition Humor Us will include contemporary artistic explorations in any medium that examine humor as a positive and negative boundary between the speaker and the target of humor. 

The opening of the exhibition next fall presents a timely connection to the presidential elections and artists are encouraged to present works that reflect issues apart of American citizen concerns in a new presidential tenure.  How might young adults display religious and race discrimination, or a crippling economy, or housing costs through humor? Humor Us intends to make hearts heavy with laughter and faces hurt from smiles to approach conversations about critical issues students located in the US face today.

Congratulations from the team at Embark!
