Lily van der Stokker: Focal Point Gallery

Lily van der Stokker is included in the group exhibition Duh? Art and Stupidity, curated by Paul Clinton and Anna Gritz, at Focal Point Gallery in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, U.K. The exhibition is open through Mar 26.

Duh?‘  looks at stupidity as a subject and a tactic of art making, with a particular focus on its relationship to the politics and performance of identity. High culture is meant to keep its audience from being stupid, but artists have repeatedly drawn upon stupidity, or playing stupid, as a form of dissidence, irreverence or as a means to cast off received thinking.
