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, Emily Galicek, Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro, Gillian Kayrooz, Tara Marynowsky and Kenny Pittock

Exhibition Dates: 22 April – 17 May 2020

Art Space on The Concourse: 409 Victoria Avenue, Chatswood (next to The Concourse Box Office)

Opening Hours: Wednesday to Friday 11am-5pm, Saturday 11am-9pm (Extended evening hours) and Sunday 11am-4pm

Exhibition Preview: 6.30 – 9.30pm, Tuesday 21 April
Coinciding with Sydney Comedy Festival Gala at The Concourse
