KINDNESS: Prints and drawings by David Shrigley
Saturday 27 July - Sunday 6 October 2019

Inspired by Nottingham City Museums’ latest acquisition ‘KINDNESS’, we examine contemporary satire through the work of contemporary artist David Shrigley.  In this collection of prints and drawings, Glasgow-based Shrigley’s wit and humorous observations – not directly pointed at any particular point, person or group – comment on how the artist responds to the world around him. Rather than attacking politicians or monarchs, Shrigley highlights the obscurities of the Human Condition, mocking the often benign and casual way we live our daily lives.

This is exhibition is free, but normal entry charges apply.  Please see our 'Visit' pages for opening times and seasonal changes.

 

KINDNESS accompanies The Golden Age of Satire? from the British Museum
