Happyness

11 December 2015 – 31 January 2016

This exhibition reflected on the philosophy that life need not be conventionally perfect for the condition of ‘happiness’. Insightful and complex, these contemporary artworks scrutinised our world and the human condition in such a way as to generate awareness through humour, playfulness and enchantment.
