A Council curated exhibition exploring artists that use humour and irony to talk about serious or light-hearted things.

A Willoughby City Council curated group exhibition, presented in partnership with the Sydney Comedy Festival. For centuries, artists have been using their medium to challenge or criticise serious issues. Alternately, artists have broken historical artistic canons to reveal that art objects or visual images can be playful or comedic. Shaping Wit explores the work of artists who use humour and irony to talk about serious or light-hearted things. Satirical and cynical art can provide a subtle means for compelling its audience to challenge preconceived ideas and social and political conventions.

Artists: Will Coles, Chris Dolman, Blak Douglas, Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro, Gilliam Kayrooz, Tara Marynowsky and Kenny Pittock
