Abstract

Grin & Bear It: Cruel humour in art and life, Curated by Claire Feely and Matt PackerParticipating Artists: James Beale, Stella Capes, Common Culture, Henry Coombes, Francisco Goya, Catherine Harty, William Hogarth, W. K. Haselden, Friedrich Kunath, Peter Land, Sean Landers, Nevan Lahart, Leo McCann, Harold Offeh, David Sherry, David Shrigley, Stephen Sutcliffe, Bedwyr Williams, and Ed Young. Poking fun at life's absurdities conceals the fine line that exists between laughter and sadness. Although there are recognisable jokes throughout the exhibition, it focuses specifically on what it is that makes us resort to humour in difficult situations.
