Jayson Musson Please Tell Me More About Your Job, 2012
“I greatly value the place of humor in art. When asked about what I look for in the artists and art I choose to exhibit, I often cite humor as a criterion. I am not looking for the roll-on-the-floor, laughing-my-head-off type of humor I seek from my friends or from entertainment, but rather an acknowledgment of the often-absurd nature of life. Art that seems to know our everyday lives are tough; art that understands we seek solace as well as inspiration, insight, and yes, even amusement.”
Excerpt from Ha. Ha. by Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson from the Funny. exhibition catalog.
