Posted September 26th, 2013

Contemporary Art, Shows, Talks

The performer and comedian Doon Mackichan, performance artist Bedwyr Williams, and Tate curator Martin Myrone, join BBC Arts Editor Will Gompertz and online contributors for a lively discussion about comedy and art. This Hangout On Air took place on 24 September, 2013 at Tate Britain.

The current exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg also deals with the subject. Slapstick! (Until 2 February 2014) pairs contemporary works by John Bock, Rodney Graham, Wilfredo Prieto, Timm Ulrichs, Peter Fischli and David Weiss, Bruce Nauman and Francis Alys with earlier scenes from the films of Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd and Laurel and Hardy.
