This was funny yesterday

When: September 25 – October 19, 2012
Opening Reception – Thursday, October 4 from 6:30-7:30PM
Where: CCS Gallery, Building 494, UC Santa Barbara

The use of humor in arty production is a fairly recent and often oddly overlooked development. This Was Funny Yesterday begins with a look at the use of humor in classic conceptual art and extends to a broad array of more recent practice. Including Vito Acconci, Brian Bress, John Divola, Martin Kersels, Allison Miller, Camilo Ontiveros, Stephanie Washburn, and the collective D3, this exhibition explores a kind of humor nestled at the unlikely intersection of the physical world and abstract thought.
