IS THIS THING ON?

Running in conjunction with the 2016 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Is This Thing On? is a celebration of humour, wit and weirdness in the work of 10 contemporary visual artists who, like comedians, risk humiliation, insult and indifference.

Art Exhibition previously on at Counihan Gallery In Brunswick in Victoria, Australia.
From Friday 18 March 2016 to Sunday 24 April 2016

Including themes of satire, irreverence, pathos, surrealism and the absurd, this exhibition will feature animated objects, video work, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, textiles and installation.
