Summary

Presenting works rife with wit and a hint of the absurd, An Eyeful Of Wry is an exhibition intent on exploring art cut with a wry sense of humour.

From droll, 18th-century caricatures by James Gillray, to satirical prints and Simon Faithfull’s video of an impossible journey, these works in different media explore our respective positions – the artist as the joker and the viewer as a sharp-eyed observer. They offer an insightful look at the blend of art and comedy that has shaped the Government Art Collection since its inception.
