FUNNY HA HA!
December 1st 2022 to January 22nd 2023
Maddox Gallery is delighted to host FUNNY HA HA, a thought-provoking group exhibition curated by the painter Roxana Halls.
The exhibition features a selection of images which Halls finds humorous – and which she invites the viewer to enjoy and consider. In the process she addresses the subjectivity of humour, as well as the longstanding critical snobbery towards imagery that makes people laugh. Can't work which is funny also be serious, she asks?
FUNNY HA HA is doubly timely. First, because, in such challenging geopolitical times, the human race needs humour now as much as ever; and second, because in an age of cancel culture, what constitutes humour is a much-disputed issue.
