I always enjoy a comedy show with a slightly different hook, so this Friday, April 13 Modern Whitney show at Friends and Lovers jumped right out. The concept goes like this: A panel of comics analyze a well-known painting or sculpture and each provides his or her take on its meaning. Afterwards, someone who actually knows what they’re talking about (i.e. a legit art historian) gives the audience the real deal explanation and describes the work’s cultural impact. Hosts Matt Harkin and Akmal Tajihan will be joined by Randall Otis, Nasser Khan, and Arianna Durnell starting at 8:30pm, and it’s free if you register here.
