It’s 7th period in high school, you’re in health class, and the teacher brings out the inevitable props… A banana, a donut, and all sorts of properly conservative allusions to the body. The class snickers, and for the rest of the day, innuendos are passed from friend to friend under the probing ears of the teachers. Innuendo is a collaborative exhibition of artwork and goods featuring playful allusions to the lewd and salacious. The 80 featured artists have come together for Light Grey Art Lab’s yearly swap event, in which each artist creates enough of their chosen artwork or object to share with their fellow exhibitors. Participants have created a range of limited edition art objects including pins, postcards, stickers, zines, patches and more that dance around taboo subjects with humorous imagery.
Limited quantities of each item will also be available during the opening reception and on Light Grey Art Lab’s online store.
My folded postcard of “A short but comprehensive guide to pine cones will be available for purchase! Take a look!
