Knock Knock: Humour In Contemporary ArtThis will put a smile on your face. KNOCK KNOCK at the South London Gallery explores the enduring use of humour as a device in contemporary art. Featuring works by more than thirty artists, the show covers everything from parody to visual pun through works by established figures such as Maurizio Cattelan, Sarah Lucas and Ugo Rondinone as well as younger artists such as Danielle Dean, Hardeep Pandhal and Simeon Barclay. It's staged in the SLG's main space and is the first exhibition to be held in the gallery's new annexe, the former Peckham Road Fire Station, which launches with a celebratory weekend of free events on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd September.
