Funk You Too! Humor and Irreverence in Ceramic Sculpture
The first book to connect the historic Funk Art movement to contemporary ceramic practice.
The founding generation of Funk artists used irony and satire to deflate the aesthetic hierarchy that dismissed ceramics as hobby art. Funk You Too! explores the movement’s influence on contemporary artists, spotlighting the enduring roles of satire, absurdity, and irreverence on image-making with clay. Today, in the hands of a younger, more diverse cohort, a similarly cheeky approach is used to address social injustice, and slapstick or gallows humor is a vehicle for confronting thorny subject matter like race, gender, and sexuality. Hardcover, 128 pages.
