Shannon Plumb: What A Character

Apr. 21-Aug. 23, 2015
Boca Raton Museum of Art

Shannon Plumb’s solo exhibition of short videos and Super-8 films is inspired by the spirit of slapstick comedy and the physical humor of iconic silent screen legends such as Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton. Plumb creates and plays a diverse cast of characters such as Olympic athletes, cowboys, and advertising announcers, employing a low-fi asthetic with long takes and hand-made props and costumes.

Curated by Kathleen Goncharov, Boca Raton Museum of Art.
