san francisco: funny face, i love you

artist tammy rae carland's solo show funny face, i love you opens at silverman gallery on fri - sep 10 [6pm-8pm]. on display are new photographs, mixed media works and a cast porcelain sculpture. inspired by the history of female comedians, and the artist explores questions of humor and desire, juxtaposing images of empty stages with singular figures caught mid-act. these works isolate the body, focusing less on the artifice of public personas than the sheer spectacle of performing corporealities. location: 804 sutter street [nob hill]. © silverman gallery / tammy rae carland - i'm dying up here #3 [glitter drapes] - [2010]
