Group Chat: Caustic + Bitters

Artists integrate humour in their works of art in ways that can be twisted, dark, political, silly, nonsensical, weird and dry. In this tour, you will join Isabelle Marie Anne Gillet, UMMA’s Stenn Fellow in Public and Digital Humanities and Museum Pedagogy, to explore and discuss how artists use humor as a tool to undermine the superficial meaning of what is depicted and subvert or even confuse expectations. We might even laugh.

This is one of five themed tours offered as part of UMMA + Chill during the month of February. Each theme will be accompanied by a customized beverage suggestion created by local mixologists.
