So Funny It Hurts: Alice Cunt and Kale Likover
March 10, 2011 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
10 March 2011
curated by Brian Getnick
LACE is thrilled to present So Funny it Hurts, a series of performances curated by artist and writer Brian Getnick. At a base level, humor, especially dark humor attracts an audience. All of the works of these artists can be enjoyed as humorous at first reading. However, the ways that these artists use satire to mine complex psychologies and slippery notions of self offer even more to those who are willing stay after the laughter has died.
Set to take place over the course of four evenings, So Funny it Hurts examines artists who use satire as a means of exploring complex notions of self often contained within the oppositional force they seek to dismantle. It will also serve as a forum for understanding satire as a native strategy, one that is particularly suited in response to the experience of living in Los Angeles. Participating artists include Nathan Bockelman, Alice Cunt, Asher Hartman with Curt Lemieux, Paul Outlaw, and Lauren Weedman.
Alice Cunt is a Los Angeles-based antenna to the planet Fabelhaft who works and plays in the realm of performance and multimedia art, which has been featured in various nightclub and gallery venues.
Kale Likover is a Los Angeles artist who works with a variety of materials, including his body. His work seeks to disrupt the dichotomous conceptualization of gender while examining the intersection of the individual and community, in turn creating multiple genders and gendered spaces. He received is BFA in 2006 from UCLA, and has performed at Confusion is Sex #1 and #2, Trans/Giving and Queer Mondays at Highways.

10 March: Alice Cunt and Kale Likover
24 March: Lauren Weedman and Nathan Bockelman
