David Shenton Exhibition

These Foolish Things: Shenton’s cartoons are often camp but they’re not just camp, and they’re not that awful apolitical offensive camp, but a light, knowing, meaningful camp; their first task is to entertain and to make the audience laugh – and often they do much more because the liberation politics that informs his work means that with the laugh there is an acerbic point – a wry observation on how we live or a satirical comment about society and a wider political context, contained in the lives and musings of plausible and likeable characters. Or sometimes it’s just a silly joke.

Steve Silverwood and Laurence Stead are from Upside Comics – www.upsidecomics.org.uk – and they’ll be reporting on workshops they’ve recently held for the purpose of aiding literacy as well as spreading the word of the art form itself. Many cartoonists have been doing this work for a while (our trusty Dr Parsons and his www.crazycomicclub.co.uk for a start, not to mention all the other folks listed in www.cartoonclassroom.co.uk) and its future is under threat due to current cuts in schools and libraries, so reporting of practical results from such work is more needed than ever.
