Double Act: Art and Comedy, Belfast

Double Act: Art and Comedy at the MAC, Belfast

I hopped on a plane to Belfast to visit Double Act: Art and Comedy. The exhibition, curated by David Campbell and Mark Durden, is twinned with an exhibition of the same name at Bluecoat. It shows a different story entirely to the one I visited on School Lane, Liverpool.

Season’s Greetings and some notices from ArtinLiverpool

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Wonderful Arty New Year.

Interview with The (Still Anonymous) Daily Sketcher
