On February 14 in New York, Daniels Faculty Assistant Professor Wei-Han Vivian Lee presented recent work — and jokes! — as part of Storefront for Art and Architecture's Cabaret Series. The event, entitled ha ha ha (The Funny, the Witty, and the Grotesque) explored the intersections between humour, art, and architecture through performance and discussion.
From Storefront for Art and Architecture’s website: “Laughter, giggles, grins, and smirks — actions that often originate as spontaneous and instinctive expressions of amusement — create a sense of self-awareness. That which we find funny can be genuinely ground-breaking, changing people’s perspectives by signalling common spaces of understanding"
For those who weren’t able to attend, a video of the full event is now up on Storefront for Art and Architecture’s Youtube page. Lee’s set starts 22 minutes and 14 seconds in.
