David Humphrey settings and protagonists

For those of you that saw David Humphrey's show at Protocol in the spring you might find Craig Drennen's interview with Humphrey interesting since they talk about that exhibition as well as his origins in sculpture and the development of his work.

 I have a show that just opened two days ago in Gainesville, Fla., at a new gallery called Protocol that was curated by Linda Norden. It’s a not-for-profit art space that is attached to a residency and an interesting plot of land. The show is called “A Horse Walked Into a Painting,” and Norden focused on an aspect of my work having to do with the theatrical relationship between a setting and the protagonists. I’ve worked with this crude binary of ‘Where is it?’ and ‘Who’s in it?’ for many years. Sometimes the location acts as a protagonist and the characters might be passive witnesses. more
