Emma Thorne-Christy is an activist, artist and exhibit designer based in Los Angeles, CA. She is a proud feminist, cat lady, and public history buff. Emma is the founder of Exhibits of Humanity, a collective of activists, designers and storytellers applying the power of the exhibition to contemporary social issues in order to raise consciousness, encourage dialogue and inspire individual and collective change.

Laughing Matters: The Experiences of Women in Stand-Up Comedy, their most recent exhibit, explores workplace gender discrimination through the lens of stand-up comedy. The exhibition is on view through July 31, Tuesdays through Sundays, 12 – 7pm + special programs at Nous Tous Gallery in Chinatown.

We asked Emma what influenced her ideas for this exhibition.

I am very interested in social practice and pushing the boundaries of art. Here are some of the people, places, and things that I find interesting and influential.
