The show I curated opened last night, June 19th, 2014 and is called ‘In Light of’ . It is mostly about the intersection of melancholy and humor and also my obsession with using humor as a weapon to deflect oppression. What is the line between laughing at your own tragedy to gain power over it and having someone else laugh at it in a mean way? Is there one? What do we think is funny and why? So many questions! Anyways, if you’re in Calgary Canada, please check it out!

It’s at Calgary Contemporary as a part of The Sled Island Festival. It features work by Tammy Rae Carland (above image). Zachary Fabri, Ava Johnson and Becca Albee.
