This exhibition has now closed, find out what else is going on at South London Gallery



This exhibition explores the enduring use of humour as a device in contemporary art.

Featuring more than 30 artists, the exhibition brings works by internationally established figures such as Maurizio Cattelan, Sarah Lucas and Ugo Rondinone into dialogue with newly commissioned and existing works by younger practitioners such as Danielle Dean, Hardeep Pandhal and Simeon Barclay.

The show provides a surprising encounter with a broad range of humorous strategies, from slapstick, parody and caricature through to the in-joke, one-liner and visual pun.

At a time of much upheaval and unease in the world, Knock Knock aims to raise a smile, but also to explore what makes us laugh in art and why.
