Co-curated by Kayla Peterson (M.A. Art History, 2020) and Siyu Shen (M.A. Art History, 2020), What’s So Funny? How Humor Makes Us Think explores how humor may be used to provoke serious conversations on topics surrounding the political, social, and sexual climate of our world. Viewing art within the context of humor creates opportunities for new perspectives and expectations which will lead viewers to ask: What’s so funny, and why? Do you feel uncomfortable laughing when others are not? Or do you feel the need to laugh with others?
