"Humor helps us to understand the world. Seriously Funny brings together ten dynamic artists who show us how to laugh at some of life's most challenging issues, from spirituality to cultural identity. This playful exhibition proves that contemporary art can be thought-provoking and fun at the same time. Through humor we can come to a sense of community, exploring comedy in the human condition."
