> DESCRIPTION
DEADPAN(the art of the expressionless)

November 1 – December 7, 2013

Reception: November 1, 2013, 7-10pm

Curated by Ryan Standfest

The term deadpan has its origins in 1920’s American culture, when the word “pan” was slang for “face.”  Deadpan therefore was a means to describe an emotionless face.  Its contemporary usage has come to define a particular form of comedy in which the method of delivery is straight without letting the viewer in on the joke.  This becomes a bit of an intellectual exercise, as the viewer must breach the façade and find the space where the humor lay.  In order to achieve a state of deadpan expression, one must actually be expressionless.  The opposite of exaggeration, this involves a great deal of restraint as emotions are downplayed to the point of being kept under lock and key.

Please join us for an opening reception for the artists on Friday, November 1, 2013.
