Curatorial Fellowship exhibition: What's So Funny: How Humor Makes Us Think, March 21 - April 28, 2019
In his portfolio American Scenes, Haberman photographs “dioramas built around a camera’s perspective.” This series takes everyday American experiences and sights, but adds a sense of absurdity through humanoid, yet inhuman, figures with toothy grins.
