These Hilarious Memes By the Art Gallery of NSW Are the New Highlight of Lockdown

Someone deserves a pay rise.

When we think of things associated with "fun", lockdown ranks at the very bottom of that list. Memes, on the other hand—pure comedy gold.

So if you've been oscillating between "alright" and somewhere south of "fine", here's a little story to brighten up your day. Like most businesses in Sydney's current lockdown, the Art Gallery of NSW has been forced to get creative. Its solution? Pair up artwork from its huge historical collection with Instagram captions that are so clever and on the nose that we here at Concrete Playground expect someone to get a pay rise after all this is over. Seriously.

Check out some of the best memes below if you need a giggle. You can also follow the Art Gallery of NSW's Instagram page for more content.
