Diner: Waiter, waiter, what is this fly doing in my soup?!
Waiter: The backstroke.
It’s an old, bad joke. The diner’s anger is tempered by the waiter’s appreciation of the fly’s ability to swim. It is an outrage to be served soup with a fly in it, but the diner fails to see the wonder right before their eyes – a fly that can do the backstroke!
There Is a Fly in My Soup presents recent artworks by over 40 soul studio artists working in a variety of media. In this exhibition, we celebrate outstanding performances hidden in plain sight. It may not be what you ordered, but take a moment to delight in the unexpected and the extraordinary – the fly in the soup.
