Description

Inspired by the incisive comedy of Richard Pryor and the banal joke paintings of Richard Prince, Dick Jokes is a collection of penis humor culled from throughout the United States over the last 50 years, a compendium of old-fashioned, ribald jokes that have been updated by Donelle Woolford to have a particular art-world slant. Woolford—a fictional artist realized by performer Jennifer Kidwell (born 1977), director Abigail Ramsay (born 1974) and visual artist Joe Scanlan (born 1961)—instigated a global controversy when she chose to participate in the 2014 Whitney Biennial by exhibiting two dick joke paintings and performing Dick’s Last Stand, a national stand-up comedy tour, as her contribution to the show.
