Curator: Tim Berg
The American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA) is proud to present The Incongruous Body, curated by Tim Berg who brings together fourteen artists who represent, stylize, hybridize, and deconstruct the human body to starkly different comic effect. Their work is politically poignant and socially engaging; it uses observational humor and storytelling; it challenges the status quo; it defies logic; it misdirects; it exploits cultural iconography and historical references, and most of all it lays bare the inner workings of their wit. In this exposure, it invites the viewer to revel in the awkward, to embrace the weird and to scrutinize a little bit too closely themselves and the world of which we are all a part.
Robert Arneson, Molly Anne Bishop, Jeremy Brooks, Pattie Chalmers, Viola Frey, Future Retrieval, Alessandro Gallo, Taehoon Kim, Beth Lo, Elana Mann, Kristen Morgin, Kim Tucker, Matt Wedel, and Yoshitomo Nara
