Storefront Ten Eyck and Progress Report are proud to present Spitball, a group exhibition that brings together various ways in which comedy manifests itself in the studio practice and is translated into art making strategies. These artists cross categorical boundaries through material and absurdist content by creating the visual equivalent of what goes into the writing and delivery of a really good joke. By turning familiar expectations on their head, the exhibition looks at parallels behind what makes work that garners a genuine reaction by articulating the ridiculous subject at hand.

About Progress Report:
Progress Report) is an independent artist initiative founded by Kris Chatterson and Vince Contarino in 2010. PR was originally started as an online platform dedicated to artist features by showing studio works-in-progress and offering conversations around the creative process. It has since developed into a curatorial project that seeks to make connections through diverse modes of art making by finding common threads in work borne of a challenging and rigorous practice. Past exhibitions include, The Working Title, a 32-artist survey of abstraction at the Bronx River Arts Center, and Ritual Aesthetics, presented at Tompkins Projects in Brooklyn.
