philippa hughes looks behind BITE’s humor

Monday night The Pink Project’s Philippa Hughes sat down with ten artists in our current show to talk about what  goes  on behind the surface of  “funny” art.  With an exhibition entitled “BITE identity and humor,” you would expect the artwork to have sublimated meanings. To uncover the artists’ underlying intentions, Philippa began the dialogue by stating “Humor is a way to hide darkness” and then asked the artists how fear operates in their work.  Did it hinder their art making or did they use fear as a catalyst? To follow the conversation, check out Philippa’s tweets at:http://twitter.com/#!/PinkLineProject It was a terrific event full of honest, open conversation with both rising art stars and well-established regional talents. Even if you missed the dialogue, don’t miss the show. Yes, it’s dense and thoughtful but there is also some seriously funny art.
